Pre Civil War Coins 1826-1856

Recommended Posts


Some years ago when I attended the Civil War and other 19th Century type Rendezvous these early to mid 1800s Large Cent coins were pretty popular. They were found on Indian trade blankets, peddlers' rough sawn tables and some even wore them as jewelry. All these coins date from before the Civil War and all are authentic. I'm not a grader of coins I'm just selling them as Era coins from that time period. These coins traveled in the pockets and coin purses of trappers, miners, businessmen, saloon girls, homesteaders, cowboys etc. etc. They are a part of our American history. This is what occured in the years these coins were minted.


John Quincy Adam is president

1st edition of Noah Webster's dictionary published

Andrew Jackson elected 7th president of US



Plans for city of Chicago laid out

1st locomotive in U.S., "Tom Thumb," runs from Baltimore to Ellicotts Mill

I have three latrge cent coins dated 1828, 1848 ($15.00 each) and a nice coin looking to be from 1830 but the date is worn away for $10.00.

The scan doesn't really show the coins in detail well. The Mercury Head dime is used as a comparision in size.






Indian Head Cents

These are always a favorite as a few were still in circulation when many of us were kids. It was very exciting to find one mixed in with a pocket full of Lincoln Wheat pennies. Here's an oppurtunity to get some in chronological oder.

I have a set of Indian Head Pennies from 1900 to 1907 that's eight total.WAS $27.00 shipped NOW $20.00. Coins look better than the photo suggests.




Also the following Indian Head Cents 2-1901, 4-1902, 2-1903, 1-1904, 1-1905, 5-1906, and 4-1907.


All are Was $3.00 Now $2.50 each shipped.


Buffalo Nickels

Another favorite of the Baby Boom Generation

I have several Buffalo Nickel sets 1935-1936 Three coin sets for $6.50 a set shipped. All have very readable dates.
