1785 USA Bar Cent Replica
A perfect replica of an original 1785 USA Bar Cent. This was an extremely common article of currency in early America. About 2-3 pennies might buy you a drink at a local tavern in 1812, so every early 19th century persona should have a couple of these handy for pocket change. The Bar Cent was the first American penny and they were struck in 1785, though none of the pennies bore that date. This coin is die-struck in solid copper for a completely authentic appearance that won't wear off! Coin is stamped with a discrete "COPY" mark as per numismatic federal law. Please note that the coin is pictured with a modern quarter for size comparison, which is not included.
