Second Finest 1859 Indian Cent
1859 DT1C Indian Cent, Judd-230, Pollock-274, High R.7, PR64 Red
and Brown NGC.
Die Trial in Copper
Judd-230, PR64 Red and Brown
Design. Struck from regular dies for the 1859 Indian cent. The reverse has a laurel wreath with six-leaf clusters. Struck on a thick planchet in copper or bronze, with a plain edge and a medallic die alignment.
Commentary. A single Pollock number includes both Judd-230 (copper) and Judd-231 (bronze) since it is impossible to distinguish between them without elemental analysis. There are just seven or eight examples known of both Judd numbers combined.
In volume two of The Flying Eagle & Indian Cent Attribution Guide, Richard Snow itemizes seven distinct examples, noting that one of his seven may actually be a regular-issue 1859 cent. The present specimen is unlisted in Snow, so it may be either a seventh or eighth known piece. It appears to be the second finest known specimen.
Physical Description. Brilliant and fully mirrored mint red surfaces exhibit excellent contrast. Both sides have slight mellowing of the color, preventing a full Red designation, and minor spots or toning splashes that prevent a Gem grade assignment. Census (as Judd-230): one in 64 Red and Brown, none finer (11/08). NGC has certified a "Judd-231" as PR65 Brown. PCGS has also certified a single PR64 Red and Brown as its finest Judd-230.
Provenance. Ex: Stack's (6/1988), lot 428.
