About Me

I collect mainly early date large cents (1793-1814) with some middle dates, late dates and a few other odds and ends thrown in for good measure. Many of them are in low grade, but I've tried to get decent coins for the grade in general (not always successfully.) When I first started out, I decided to try to build a date set from 1793 to 1857 (which took quite a long time,) with little respect to quality. As I've matured, I find myself pursuing coins with nicer eye appeal. (This is probably a common evolutionary path for most collectors!)

To view the collection, just click on one of the links above to go to a specific category. All photos are taken with a Canon T2i DSLR camera using an OTT lite for a light source.

I am proud to be a member of the Early American Coppers Club (EAC) and have been a member since 1997. If you have an interest in early copper and are not a member, I would highly recommend joining. Just contact me or go to EAC's official webpage, http://www.eacs.org, and especially view the video "Benefits of Membership". There are no other coin clubs quite like EAC in terms of people who are passionate about coins and are willing to share their knowledge about them.

If you have a coin-related webpage and would like to swap links, please email me at tom@largecents.net and I'll be happy to give you a link to your page.

Thanks for dropping by!
