What this coin looks like (obverse, reverse, mint mark location, special features, etc.):
One major variety is the 1826/5 Overdate Error of the Coronet Head Large Cent (Penny). This variety features an 1826 date struck over an 1825 date which resulted in parts of the leading "5" still being visible underlying the "6" or most notably within the upper loop of the "6". In addition: A small chip appears near the bottom-right star on the obverse of the coin. These features are depicted by the arrows in the example image of the coin above.
