Should we Split the Coronet Cents into Two Types?
I've just added a '38 Coronet to my type set, along side of my '18. To me, the Coronet cent type evolved into a very different type, with the 1835-1839 years taking on a very different, decidedly non-matronly look. When I bought my Coronet type I avoided the later years because I thought they looked too much like the Braided Hair type. I now think we should have a "Coronet - Matron" type 1816-1835 and a "Coronet - Modified" type for 1835-1839. What do you think?
