Description:
1859 Indian Cent Pattern, PR63
Popular Judd-227
1859 P1C Indian Cent, Judd-227, Pollock-271, R.6, PR63 NGC. CAC.
Design.
The regular issue obverse of the Indian cent is paired with the reverse that shows a broad shield with an ornamental scroll at the top of the oak wreath. Struck in copper-nickel with a plain edge.

Commentary. Judd-227 is a popular issue and not too difficult to locate. An early auction appearance was in lot 108 of the Lorin G. Parmelee Collection (New York Coin & Stamp), where it was listed in the pattern section along with an example of Judd-228:

"1859 Cents: Indian heads (adopted type). R oak wreath: garnished and plain shields: former rare: cop-nickel: uncirc.; 3 pcs."


From the cataloger's comments, Judd-227 must have been a more challenging issue in 1890 than it is today. Perhaps several examples surfaced in William Woodin's hoard in 1910.

Physical Description. This attractive Select specimen exhibits sharply detailed design elements and mattelike surfaces on the obverse, with just a few hints of reflectivity. The reverse is equally sharp, with a lighter, satiny appearance overall. Areas of light brown toning mix with the original orange-red. The overall effect is quite appealing. Census: 2 in 63, 5 finer (3/13).

Provenance. "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $12.50; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
From The Eric P. Newman Collection. (PCGS# 11930)
