I had a goal to own a roll of 1858 large cents, so the last couple of years I have been hanging on to all the 1858 cents I came across. and I finally am able to make a roll although the store didnt have any large cent rollers/coin tubes so I was not able to roll them.
but for me I like the way it looks maybe I will make another roll now .
were large cents rolled in lots of 50? or was it 25?
anyway I should get them back in a book now because if something were to happen to me I would hate to see my wife take this roll to the bank

















please check out my collection of large cents from 1858 - 1920 (click link below, you DO NOT need a facebook account to view)

How do you just "come across" 1858 cents, so that you can "hang on" to them?

Standardized rolls of coins did not exist in 1858.
At best they may have been shipped by banks in "tubes" of 100, like some US coins of the era, or quantities as required.
People of the time would not have accepted rolled coins. Customers and business people would not leave the bank without checking to make sure each and every coin was "good coin", they had little tolerance for underweight, well worn coins were only grudgingly accepted. Scales were prominent features in the banks.
Governments and economies were tenuous, it was important that your coins were of full weight because that is what gave them a lasting value.
These Provincial cents were not popular. They weighed about half as much as halfpenny tokens which circulated at about the same value. They even weighed less than the then contemporary US small cents.

I have rolls of large cents, but certainly not rolls of 1858! This blows my efforts out of the water.
DBM, thanks for your insights into the practices of 1858. This is a subject worth investigating further.

I am wondering then, if a business then wanted 1000 cents, it would have been an effort to get them.

Oriole, Large cents and Half Cents were shipped in bags or kegs. Anyone could order a keg of large cents, and some did. Banks never rolled their over the counter stuff until about 1860.

1858s are scarce, but the mintage was not exactly small (ca. 1.5 million). In a hoard of hundreds of Victorian cents I examined in the 1970s there were over 50 of them. They're certainly around to be had, both at bourse tables and on eBay. eBay often has ten or more at any given time. However, many of the 1858s on eBay are Buy It Now and tend not to be very reasonably priced.

My guess is gidjit's were mostly not purchased by paying top dollar, and that's much harder to do than just throwing money at them.

Gidjit that's an extraordinary accomplishment! You might be very interested in picking up a copy of Dr Haxby's book - Striking Impressions. The first portion of the book extensively outlines various pre-RCM coinage and currency used in Canada, a very fascinating read which puts context into what you've collected.
