What is the value of a 1793 US large cent?

There were several varieties of large cent minted in 1793 and all are considered to be quite rare. Make sure your coin doesn't have the word COPY worked into the design in small letters, which would indicate it's a modern replica.

If the word COPY isn't on your coin, it should be inspected by a professional dealer or appraiser. Depending on variety and condition, retail prices as of 10/2010 can start at $1300 or so, and run all the way up to over a million dollars.
