Description

Copper-Nickel 1856 Half Cent Pattern
Judd-177, PR63

1856 E1/2C Half Cent, Judd-177, Pollock-205, R.5, PR63 NGC. The regular half cent dies of 1856 but, continuing the metallic composition experiments begun in 1850 that would lead to the successful introduction of the copper-nickel small cents, the planchets for these pieces are copper-nickel, either 88:12 or 90:10. Struck with a plain edge. These are experimental alloy pieces, and apparently the difference in alloy was not noticeable to many people who saw them in the 19th century and quite a few were spent. This is a deeply mirrored proof striking that shows a lovely mixture of red and blue on each side. Sharply defined in most areas.
From The Van Treuren Collection.
