1834 Coronet Head Large Cent Penny - Combination of Varieties

The 1834 had 4 major varieties of varying combinations of features on the obverse and reverse of the coin. One feature is the Large "8" vs Small "8" varieties which deals with the size of the number "8" in the 1834 date. The Large "8" was larger and taller than the number "3" while the Small "8" was more level and equal in relative size to the "3". The differences and comparisons can be seen in the example image above. It should be fairly easy to indentify each variety after reviewing the rest of the example image:

The second feature deals with the size of the stars on the obverse of the coin or Large Stars vs Small Stars. The differences between these can be seen in the example image below:
