This is a 1844 braided hair cent. I am NOT a professional collector NOR appraiser so use YOUR own judgment before bidding on this item. This does come with a protective sleeve. The sleeve was removed for better photo quality. I will combine shipping on multiple orders. Photo quality differs with lighting and or angle. Please ask for more photos if desired. Side note - this is not to be spent but used for collecting purposes. Paypal or credit card are preferred payment methods. No international shipping. If you are purchasing multiple items, please message me and I will send you an invoice for combined shipping.
