Three Penny Collection
Before Abraham Lincoln's famous profile graced the obverse of today's pennies, we had the Large Cent, the Flying Eagle Cent, and the Indian Head Penny--and this 3-coin set contains one of each!

The copper Large Cent (a.k.a. the Coronet, Matron, or Liberty Head Cents), issued from 1816-1857, was about the size of a half dollar and weighed 10.89 grams.

The copper/nickel Flying Eagle Cent, issued from 1856-1858, boasted a more demure size and weight, making them less expensive to produce, and featured a flying eagle on the obverse.

The Indian Head Penny circulated from 1859-1909, with Lady Liberty wearing a Native American headdress on the obverse, and an oak wreath and small shield on the reverse.

These historical coins arrive individually encapsulated and collectively giftboxed. Mint years vary.
