Description

Copper Striking of the 1854 Large Cent
Judd-160, PR66 Brown

1854 P1C One Cent, Judd-160, Pollock-187, R.4, PR66 Brown NGC. The obverse shows Liberty with a Braided Hair design and the date below, all in a plain field. The reverse has a small laurel wreath around the denomination ONE CENT with the exterior legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. Struck in copper with a plain edge. The Judd-160 is struck in copper, while the Judd-161 is the same design in bronze. In our opinion, it is guesswork which is which, and we urge elemental analysis of these pieces to determine whether a piece is copper or bronze. This example does have rich brown color overall, with deep blue accents around the devices. The reflectivity in the fields are extraordinarily deep, and there are no observable contact marks on either side of this high-grade piece.
From The Bob Simpson Collection. (NGC ID# 5WWB, PCGS# 11659)

HA is a traditional auction house, they set up their auctions slightly different from typical domain auctions. This works well, it seems to be a good mix of old age (live bidding in a prestigious hotel) and new age (online bidding).
