Description

1854 Cent Pattern, Reduced From a Seated Dollar
Judd-157 in German Silver, PR64

1854 E1C One Cent, Judd-157, Pollock-185, High R.7, PR64 PCGS. 51.08 grains. 61% copper, 26% nickel. 12% zinc. The obverse is derived from a Seated dollar obverse die, but crudely reduced by a circular lathe to the diameter of a contemporary half cent. The 4 in the date resembles a 1 because of the blurry reduction. On the reverse, 1 CENT is encircled by an oak and acorn wreath. Struck with a reeded edge in a German silver alloy with the combination stated above (and printed on the insert). Several compositions are known of this pattern, and only a few examples have been subjected to metallurgical analysis. The surfaces are remarkably bright and silver-like with a slight presence of hazy gray patina. Each side is relatively problem-free, which is significant when one considers the crude method used to produce these pieces. (NGC ID# 32G5, PCGS# 11650)
