Product Description

Large Cent NGC Circulated - Thomas Uram Signed

We know our modern cents as copper plated pieces, but they used to be solid copper! The production of solid copper coins had become unsustainable by 1857. So, the US Mint had to come up with the alternative of using significantly less copper for cents. Immediately after the large cent, pennies were much smaller and were only composed of .880 pure copper, until eventually they eventually had almost no copper like they do today. Every Large Cent was only minted at the Philadelphia mint, the oldest mint in the US.

Even better, this Large Cent has been certified by NGC with a very special signed label. Thomas Uram, President of the Pennsylvania Association of Numismatists and a previous member of the American Numismatic Association (ANA) Board of Governors, hand signed this label! He is a lifelong collector and has made an unquestionable impact on coin collecting as he spearheaded the 1921 Coinage Act that brought us the 100th Anniversary Morgan and Peace Dollars. He exclusively signs for Bullion Shark, so you're getting a piece you can't get ANYWHERE else!

Highlights:

  • Pure copper!
  • NGC Certified
  • Bullion Shark exclusive Thomas Uram signature
