1854 Cent Pattern, Nickel-Copper Alloy1854 E1C One Cent, Judd-158, Pollock-185, High R.6, PR65 NGC. A curious cent pattern design. An 1854 Seated dollar obverse was subjected to a crude reducing lathe, creating a smaller obverse die with blurry device details and circular lathe lines. The pattern reverse features 1 CENT encircled by an oak and acorn wreath. Struck with a reeded edge in an alloy of 40% nickel, 60% copper. This piece is struck from misaligned dies. The reverse appears to be 10% off center toward 11:30, but the obverse is correctly centered. Softly struck on the upper obverse border and opposite part of the lower reverse. Brilliant and immaculate with a minor retained lamination on the central reverse.
From The Vetter Family Collection of Commemorative Half Dollars. (PCGS# 11652)
