Collectible 1850 "Ring" Cent, Judd-119, Proof 63

1850 P1C One Cent, Judd-119 Original, Pollock-134, Low R.6, PR63 PCGS. The obverse displays the denomination CENT at the top, the date 1850 at the bottom, two rosettes at the sides, and a perforation in the center. The central reverse is also perforated with the inscriptions USA and ONE TENTH SILVER around. Struck in billon (10% silver, 90% copper) with a plain edge. The reverse was struck from a shattered die, as were most extant representatives of this scarce pattern. The ring cents of 1850 were made in response to Congressman Sam F. Vinton of the House Ways and Means Committee, who drafted a resolution in 1849 to reduce the size of the One Cent piece. Deep steel-gray patina covers each side except for a bit of coppery patina that surrounds the devices. Population: 10 in 63, 10 finer (5/05).
From The Western Hills Collection.(#11511) (NGC ID# 2A57, PCGS# 11511)
