Description

1884 One Cent, Judd-1721, Pollock-1929, R.6, PR 66 NGC. Eastman Johnson's "holey" design for the cent with a hole pierced through the center with an irregular circumference. These experimental pieces were intended to make small denomination coinage easier to distinguish by the blind, and thereby "remedy the inconvenience of similarity in our small coin." Simply inscribed on each side with no central design (obviously). Struck in nickel with a plain edge. Lightly toned and probably of the thin planchet variety, although it is impossible to determine with certainly due to encapsulation. (NGC ID# 2ABG, PCGS# 61721)
