The "late date" or "Braided Hair" Large cents are part of a much longer series that began in 1793 or they can be collected by themselves as a separate series. Sometimes referred to as the "short set" of the Large cents, these coins are still quite a challenge in mint state and a fascinating group of coins in any grade.

Notes: This set has bonuses. Please see the Set Composition for a listing.
