1854 Pattern Braided Hair Cent. Judd-161 Original, Pollock-187. Rarity-4. Proof-63 BN (PCGS). Copper. Plain edge. Head of Liberty left as on the circulating large cents of the era sans obverse stars, wreath reverse similar to the earlier Matron Head issues of 1816-1839, but smaller in size. Deep golden tan with traces of mint orange. A neat pattern that is typically collected alongside the large cents of the era.
