Classic Head (1808 - 1814)

This group (1808–1814) does not compare in sharpness and quality to those struck previously (1793–1807) nor to those struck later (from 1816 on). The copper used was softer, having more metallic impurity. This impaired the wearing quality of the series. For this reason, collectors find greater difficulty in obtaining these dates in choice condition.
