Ron Guth: 1824 Large Cents come in two major varieites: Normal Date and an 1824/1 overdate.  This narrative covers the Normal Date.

Overall, the 1824 Large Cent is not a particularly rare date, but because it was never found in hoard quantities, it is decidedly more difficult to locate a Mint State 1824 Large Cent than an 1817, 1818, 1820, and even an 1816.  Those 1824 Large Cents that have survived in Mint State tend to be middle-of-the-road (MS62 to MS64) and very few Gems are available to satisfy collector demand.  We know of only a small handful that qualify as MS65 or better.  Red-Brown examples are extremely scarce, but they tend to be nicer than  the Brown examples.  We are unaware of any 1824 Large Cents that would qualify as full Red.
