1856 Young Head Large Cent; in good condition is worth $12.00, in fine condition is worth $16.00, uncirculated is worth $150.00

More:There are two varieties of the 1856 Braided Hair Liberty Large Cent and the value depends on what condition it is in. There is a slanting 5 variety and an upright 5 variety. Basically the "5" in "1856" is either slanted or upright. The values are pretty much the same for both varieties so you really only need to pay attention to what condition the coin is in.

According to USA Coin Book, these coins in good condition are worth about $17 up to about $160 in MS60 mint condition. A coin in MS63 choice uncirculated grade is worth about $240.
