Thank you to everyone that attended the September meeting.

Presentation Large Cent
1793 was the official start of minting coins for the United States. Steve’s presentation highlighted the large cent that was used from 1793 to 1857. 8 different designs where created. They were pure copper. The design of the coin from 1797 to 1807 was not popular. 1815 was the year no large cents were minted. The 1858 Flying Eagle replaced the large cent. Thanks for the information Steve.
