    large cent error

    I have a 1848 large cent and on the back,when I cleaned it,there is a U where the E is suppose to be. I know this sounds nasty,but it is plain as day, ONE C#NT. I cant take a picture anyway. I dont want to offend anybody.

    A victim of a prankster. . . probably a young teen with too much time on his hands

    As it is, it's probably worth more in its adulterated state. . . cool find

    Actually that is a fairly common alteration to a large cent I have a few of them of different dates.
