Description:
Choice Judd-227 1859 Indian Cent
Possibly From the Famous Farouk Collection
1859 P1C Indian Cent, Judd-227, Pollock-271, Low R.6, MS64 NGC. Snow-PT3. The designs are reminiscent of the issued 1860 Indian cent, but the reverse shield is broad and ornamented. Struck in copper-nickel with a reeded edge, and many times rarer than the transitional Judd-228. This is a beautiful sun-gold near-Gem. The obverse has cartwheel luster, while the reverse is prooflike. Intricately struck and mark-free with occasional pinpoint carbon.
Accompanied by an old-type typed collector envelope, and an Abe Kosoff signed cardboard tag that attests 'this coin' is from the Palace Collection of King Farouk of Egypt. The tag refers to AW-313, the pre-Judd Adams-Woodin designation for the pattern variety. Presumably once part of lot 1770, sold on March 3, 1954 in the Cairo, Egypt Sotheby auction.
From The Martin L. Diffenbaucher, Jr. Collection. (PCGS# 11930)
