This past Saturday I had the opportunity to meet the owner and team at Nevada Coin and Jewelry. I didn’t know what to expect but they made me feel both comfortable and safe. I went through my collection of jewelry, both broken pieces and things I thought were of no value at all. They took the time to explain what each carat weight was worth and they helped me sort through my items. I was amazed at what they gave me for things I would never wear or use. I would recommend you stop in and speak to them, you might be as pleasantly surprised as I was.
Large cents are a classification of pennies that were produced at the Philadelphia mint in the United States starting in 1793 and running all the way up to 1857. The composition of large cents is of pure copper. In the early years of producing large cents, there were many different die varieties as the dies used for producing for the large cents were generally hand made. This makes for many desirable variations for large cents collectors. Of the most valuable large cents produced is the 1793 Flowing Hair, Chain Reverse large cent, the first America produced in it’s beginning days. The Liberty Cap large cents were produced next in the line of large cents and was made for just a few years between 1793 and 1796.
