  1. Got this Coronet Head. Looks like a kid 150 years ago got bored with their rocks and used it to bash in the date. XD any help on what the date could be? i think it might be an 1819, 1818, or an 1924.

    The last digit can't be a four because it is in a different font.

  6. 1821 is a good guess as well.

    The coronet heads prior to 36 were the old looking Matron head types. The Young heads were 36- 39. The only way to id is by attributing using pics. Trying to match the coin itself. This is a young head, so it has to be between 1836-39. You can look here and try to match hairstyles, stars, mouth, denticles, beaded hair band ect...http://www.pcgscoinfacts.com/Coin/Detail/1726
  10. you're right @old49er didnt catch that. it is a 36-39 thank you, that norrows it down a lot

    In the Redbook, admittedly simplified, the only dates shown with a dot between One and Cent: 1837-1839.

    It also has beeded hair cords which eliminates 1836, and about half of the 1837's. The head style is what is called Head of 38 and that eliminates all but one variety of 1839. With more work I might be able to narrow it down completely

    I checked a little yesterday. I thought it looked like the 1838 regular strike?
