    1852 large cent

    I went yard sailing this morning and at one I got this nice 1852 large cent and a worn out 1918 dime for $5.00
    I think I made a good buy as I have never bought large cents before.

    That is a beauty! That coin appears to be in VF to XF condition (maybe better). Here are the general prices for this coin:

    VF - $26.00
    XF - $60.00
    AU - $120.00 (coin looks like it could easily qualify)

    Coin appears to be mark free... corrosion free, and verdigris free! You have a winner coin! Congrats! If you want more information on it (such as the Newcomb variety), let me know. I know someone who may be able to help you.
    When you have children, you realize what your purpose in life is. There is nothing more important than your family. Cherish it. It can be gone in a blink of an eye.

    I would absolutely say with confidence (based on that picture anyways) that the coin you have there is 100% AU.... Great find. As long as that coin didnt have any problems, (scratches, rubbing, cleaning, corrosion, etc...) I would send it to PCGS for certification/grading. Alot of people will disagree due to the $20 bucks or so you will spend getting it graded, but you paid $5 bucks for it... I would send it in, let us know if you do decide to have it graded. Congrats on a great find.

    Chris.

    It is AU-55ish.
    1/100 of an American dollar is a cent. It is NOT a penny. The word penny is used by several other countries, such as Great Britain, to denote their smallest denomination. In order to be numismatically correct, you must use the term cent to describe the American coin.

    PCGS or NGC would be best.
