    1/8th and 1/4 Cut Large Cents - Common Occurrence??

    So yesterday I found an eighth cut 1830 Large Cent and back in early January on the same field found and undated quarter cut Large Cent. How often have any of you seen US copper coins cut like this? Can't imagine value wise this served much purpose.Click image for larger version.

    Can't imagine why they did it but found this one last fall 1844. Holed and cut. Click image for larger version.

    So weird right?? Can't imagine what you would have bought for an 1/8th of a penny even in the 1830's.

    I've found two cut 1/4 pieces of a largie in the same field years back. Interesting thing is they are not from the same coin so maybe a lil more common than we think. KOOL find in my eyes bud.

    i mentioned in another post that i had come across a site yrs ago that had some old colonial journals/registers where guy kept track of goods - especially
    deals with Ma. indians for goods and services - one was like
    4 apples for a penny - so if you quartered a copper you could i guess get 1 apple
