Description:
Virtually Full Red 1863 Three Cent Pattern
Judd-319 Original, PR64 Red and Brown
1863 3C Three Cents, Judd-319 Original, Pollock-384, R.5-6, PR64 Red and Brown NGC. The obverse die is similar to the Braided Hair large cent design, with 13 stars around Liberty's bust and the date below. The reverse displays the denomination 3 CENTS in two lines, centered in a laurel wreath, with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around. Struck in bronze with a plain edge. We know these patterns were struck in bronze not copper from an entry in George Eckfeldt's journal: "Struck a few 3 cent pieces of copper & zinc ... " As described in the Eliasberg catalog, "Virtually full mint red with just a hint of delicate blue iridescence." Eliasberg owned two of these pieces. This one is identifiable by a small spot below star 7.
Ex: Eliasberg I (Bowers and Merena, 5/1996), lot 158. (PCGS# 70477)
