Description:
Copper-Nickel 1856 Half Cent, Judd-177
1856 E1/2C Half Cent, Judd-177, Pollock-205, R.5, PR50 PCGS. 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 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 those who spent this coin in mid-19th century America. A lightly circulated chocolate-brown example with broad, softly struck borders. (PCGS# 11777)
