Description

Affordable 1856 Metallurgical Pattern, Judd-177

1856 E1/2C Half Cent, Judd-177, Pollock-205, R.5, PR45 NGC. Regular die trials striking for the half cent. Struck in copper-nickel with a plain edge. These pieces were an important metallurgical trial striking that tested the proposed alloy for the Flying Eagle cents which were struck later in this same year. This is one of only two pattern half cents; an honor shared with Judd-155. Apparently the difference in metallurgical composition was not immediately apparent to a great many people who spent this coin in mid-19th century America. Even wear is seen over the highpoints with a notable scratch in the field out from stars 1 and 2.(#11777) (PCGS# 11777)
