Description:
1854 No Stars Pattern Cent
Judd-161 Original, PR66 Brown
1854 P1C One Cent, Judd-161 Original, Pollock-187, R.4, PR66 Brown NGC. Ex: Lemus Collection. 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 copper or bronze with a plain edge.
While the measurements above do not seem to be a dramatic difference, it is one that is immediately noticeable. The corresponding weights, of course, differ as well. Originals and restrikes are known. The originals, per Pollock, weigh in the neighborhood of 91 to 100 grains (5.9 to 6.5 gm), while the restrikes weigh around 113-114 grains (7.3-7.4 gm). By way of comparison, a standard 1854 large cent would weigh 10.9 gm when new. PCGS has only certified one piece as a Restrike. NGC has not given an indication which this is. This is a splendid, deeply mirrored proof. Each side shows glimmering iridescent blue patina with noticeable amounts of original red that still remain. USPatterns.com notes that these are difficult to find with much red color.
Ex: Lester Merkin (6/1972).
From The Lemus Collection, Queller Family Collection Part Three.
