Variety attribution and price guide for Braided Hair Cents (Newcomb)

3 posts in this topic

Hello!  I have been looking high and low for an attribution guide for the Braided Hair Large Cent varieties like repunched dates and date orientation etc... Where Can I find something like this?  I have looked on ebay, done several google searches and I keep coming up with coinage variety guides for Pre-1839 Braided Hair designs.  I imagine that Newcomb has published something like this in the past.  Just cannot find.  Thank you in advance for your input and help.

This is the standard guide to Braided Hair Cent varieties: https://www.coinbooks.org/v24/esylum_v24n22a02.html

It's challenging to use, not because the book isn't well written and illustrated, but rather because the differences between most dies are fairly minor. Most varieties are also illustrated by NGC, though the photos may not always reveal the subtle differences:
