Description:
Curious 1854 Cent Pattern in Copper
Judd-159A (Mint-Made Electrotype), PR64 Brown
Portrait Lathe Used on the Obverse
1854 E1C One Cent, Judd-159A, Pollock-186, High R.7, PR64 Brown PCGS. Ex: Bass. While not noted on the insert this is a Judd-159A, an electrotype, rather than a die struck Judd-159. The obverse of this small cent die was created by a portrait lathe that used an 1854 silver dollar as a model. The portrait lathe caused many circular die lines, and the design is blurry. Notably, the 4 in the date resembles a 1. On the well-made reverse die, 1 CENT is encircled by an oak and acorn wreath. Struck in copper with a plain edge. This was a widely produced pattern that included piece struck in at least three varieties of German silver, copper-nickel alloy, a 78% silver piece, die struck copper pieces as well as electrotypes, as seen here. The circular lathe lines are especially prominent on the obverse of this piece. The surfaces are almost uniformly brown with occasional blue accents around the reverse devices.
