Description

1856 Half Cent Pattern, PR63
Experimental Judd-177

1856 E1/2C Half Cent, Judd-177, Pollock-205, R.5, PR63 NGC. CAC.
Design.
Both obverse and reverse are the regular half cent dies of 1856. Continuing the metallic composition experiments begun in 1850, the planchets for these pieces are copper-nickel, either 88:12 or 90:10. Struck with a plain edge.

Commentary. USPatterns.com notes that, although these pieces have traditionally been called die trials, they are really experimental pieces that paved the way for the successful introduction of the copper-nickel small cents.

Physical Description. The well-preserved surfaces of this attractive Select specimen display a mix of copper-red and grayish-brown patina, with brightly reflective fields underneath. A few microscopic carbon spots attest to this coin's originality. The design elements are well-detailed and eye appeal is strong for the grade. Census: 2 in 63, 7 finer (3/13).
From The Eric P. Newman Collection. (PCGS# 11777)
