Although off-center Large Cents are available, they are generally 5% to 20% off-center and in an extremely low grade of preservation. This Braided Hair type Large Cent (1840-1857) was struck at least 35% off-center and is in gem mint state condition. It is one of the finest known off-center Large Cents. I purchased it in 1975 from the Bolt Collection of mint errors. I was fortunately enough to purchase it again after 30 years and it is still one of my favorite Large Cent errors.
