Description:
1854 Cent Pattern, Struck in Bronze
Judd-161, PR64 Brown
1854 P1C One Cent, Judd-161 Original, Pollock-187, R.4, PR64 Brown NGC. 95% copper, 4% zinc. 6.2 grams. The design is similar to the large cent then in circulation, but there are no stars on the obverse, and the planchet is smaller--just about 25.4 mm (1 inch), compared with a diameter for the regular large cent of 27.5 mm (1.08 inches). Struck in bronze with a plain edge. The elemental analysis proves the composition of this piece to be bronze rather than copper (Judd-160). The surfaces are notably lighter-colored than the Judd-160 above, presumably from the 4% zinc alloy. The fields are nicely mirrored and the surfaces are exceptionally clean. The only noticeable ripple in the surfaces is die clash marks on each side and a small planchet void in the field below the N in CENT on the reverse.
From The Bob Simpson Collection. (PCGS# 11663)
