Collectors Club Submit Coins Price Guide Set Registry® PCGS CoinFacts
From Don's Desk

PCGS offers several services that complement coin grading. One of those services is our TrueView service. In my opinion the best photographs in the business are TrueView photos. You can build your virtual collection using TrueView photos and enjoy it anywhere you are, anytime you wish with no security concerns or logistical hassles. TrueView photos add a new dimension to coin collecting that I really enjoy. Check out this week’s video for more information on this service.

PCGS CoinFacts: Coronet Head Cents (1816–1839)

One of the attractions of this series is that there are no mega-rarities that prevent a person of average means from completing a date set. However, there are individual die varieties (such as the proof-only Newcomb 7 of 1834) that are extremely rare and expensive. 1816 is a common date that is popular as the first year of issue. The first overdate appears in 1819 (1819/8) along with Small and Large Date varieties.

In 1836, Liberty’s head was modified by making the tip of the coronet more pointed and the tip of the bust narrower and less rounded. Most dates can be found in nice condition. Some dates, such as 1817 and 1820, were represented in hoards, making them a little easier to locate in top grades. Complete date sets of this series can be assembled with relative ease, particularly in circulated condition.
