Description

1853 One Cent Pattern in German Silver
Judd-150, Thin Planchet Variant, PR64+

1853 E1C One Cent, Judd-150 Thin, Pollock-178, Low R.7, PR64+ NGC. 2.6 grams. This small cent pattern was struck in German silver. The metallurgical composition is stated on the holder as: 60% copper, 29% nickel, and 10% zinc. Struck with a reeded edge. The German silver alloy was a candidate to replace the copper large cent, but instead, copper-nickel emerged triumphant. This experimental piece paired the regular dies of the quarter eagle with a wreath reverse that bears the denomination ONE CENT. More than a dozen examples are known of two different metallurgical compositions of German silver of this design. The fields are moderately bright and show obvious die striations on each side. The strike is complete in all areas, and there are no obvious surface distractions.
From The Thompson Collection of US Patterns. (NGC ID# 299J, PCGS# 11626)
