Coronet Head Cents
1825 1C MS

Description & Analysis

The 1825 large cent is a fairly abundant date entry, with no naked-eye varieties to tempt general interest collectors. Only in Mint State is this date slightly challenging.

Some 10 die marriages are now known, though N-5 was considered by many to be an erroneous listing until a confirmation specimen surfaced in 2011. It remains the only rarity for this date, with N-1, -3 (photos), -4, -6, -7, -8 and -10 being just moderately scarce.
