Flowing Hair one cent values - United States

The 'flowing hair' one cent coin was the first

regular issue one cent coin struck for the newly

formed United States of America.


Struck only in 1793, the obverse and reverse

designs were changed during this year, although

the reverse much more significantly.


Early coins were minted with the 'chain reverse',

although this design was short lived, superceded

by the 'wreath reverse', which was maintained for

years to come.


Issued under the USA's first president,

George Washington. (presidency 1789 -1797)

The 1793 United States 'flowing hair' one cent

obverse features the young Liberty facing right,

with wind-blown, flowing hair. Above is the word

'LIBERTY', below is a sprig of leaves and date.


The 'chain reverse' type shows 'ONE CENT'

and '1/100' encircled by a chain, with

'UNITED STATES OF AMERICA' as the legend.


The 'wreath reverse' type shows 'ONE CENT'

encircled by a wreath, with '1/100' below, and

'UNITED STATES OF AMERICA' as the legend.
