Choice 1854 Small Cent Pattern, Judd-157A

1854 E1C One Cent, Judd-157A, Pollock-185, High R.7, PR64 NGC. 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, 20% nickel, 71% copper, 9% zinc. Judd-156, Judd-157, Judd-158, and Judd-158a are also from the same dies, but the alloy differs slightly. This confuses the number of survivors for each specific Judd number, since they cannot be distinguished by color or weight. However, all varieties are clearly very rare. According to uspatterns.com, Judd-157A was discovered by Jay Parrino, and first reported in an April 1998 edition of Coin World. This lightly toned steel-blue and chestnut piece has subtle satin luster and a tiny spot on the obverse rim near 6 o'clock. Census: 2 in 64, 0 finer (3/06). (NGC ID# 32G5, PCGS# 11650)
