1850 Coper-Nickel Pattern Cent, Without Central Perforation, PR66 NGC1850 P1C One Cent, Judd-124 Restrike, Pollock-139, Low R.7, PR66 NGC. Small cent annular (ring-form) pattern, simply laid out with *CENT*1850 on the obverse, and on the reverse USA ONE TENTH SILVER. Struck in copper-nickel with a plain edge and no central perforation. This Superb representative is layered in a mix of bright gold and olive patination. The design elements, the few that there are, are well struck, those on the reverse connected by a series of interesting die cracks. Cent patterns such as this were made in response to Congressional pressure to reduce the size of the one-cent piece. The Mint then began experimenting with the production of smaller-diameter coins, some of which were perforated in the center, and some, such as the current piece, were not. Population: 1 in 66, 0 finer (7/04). (#11532) (PCGS# 11532)
