When the U.S. Mint introduced cents they were modeled on the size of big British copper pennies of the day. That's why early Americans called them pennies even though the official denomination has always been cents. Big coppers weigh about four times as much as modern cents and are larger than even early U.S. silver quarters. This last big copper features 13 stars, representing the original states, enclosing Liberty, who features an elaborate crown of braided hair. Good quality. Our choice of dates.
