View Full Version : Question on this 1810/9 Large Cent
10-02-2012, 08:39 PM
The date seems so much stronger than the rest of the obverse details on this large cent.
Was the date recut on the die, before making the coin?

First I would suggest attributing the coin and then looking up the information offered in the different reference books and you will probably find out your answer. Remember that the planchet quality for Classic Heads were not very good and they did not have the latest technology in minting coins...so I would imagine this would have bearing on why this coin has a strong date. If all else fails ask and talk to other club members and EAC Dealers and I'm sure they can spread some light on your query!!!
Take it easy.....Leo
