Rare Large Cent Variety

Coins We Love
Eye Appeal:
Degree of Toning: 4/10

An extremely popular issue, it gets its name from the 94 tiny stars around the border of the reverse die. As is typical for the date, the reverse is of a much lower grade than the obverse but the obverse is so nice that it carries the piece to a VG8.
