Transitional 1863 Pattern Cent Struck in Bronze, Judd-2991863 1C One Cent, Judd-299, Pollock-359, R.3, PR64 Red and Brown PCGS. Ex: John L. Harris Collection. Snow-PT1. Struck from regular issue one cent dies, but with bronze alloy used instead of the then current copper-nickel composition. The bronze alloy, of course, was introduced into circulation in 1864, which makes this pattern a transitional issue. Pollock lists four variants, all from the same dies, based upon the thickness of the planchet and the die alignment. While the thickness of the coin cannot be determined due to the encapsulation, this specimen has medal turn, 180 degrees from normal U.S. coin alignment. An intricately struck near-Gem with pleasing orange-red and purple-blue tints, exemplary aside from some splotchy dark color on the reverse.
Ex: John L. Harris Collection (Stack's, 11/50), lot 67.
From The Redfjord Collection. (PCGS# 70454)
