1848 Braided Hair Large Cent, rare "Small Date", triple struck, PCGS F detail.


The rare and famous 1848 Small Date variety - a contemporary unofficial striking of which only about a dozen examples are known. And this is an incredible error representative showing three strikes with the planchet flipping over in between two of those strikes. The large curved depression on each side, which is probably the reason for PCGS's "damage" qualifier, is actually a planchet cutter impression and not post-strike damage. The surfaces are a nice medium olive brown.
