Description:
1863 Three Cent Pattern
Judd-319, PR65 Red and Brown
Braided Hair Obverse Motif
1863 3C Three Cents, Judd-319 Original, Pollock-384, R.5, PR65 Red and Brown NGC. CAC.
Design.
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 or copper with a plain edge.

Commentary. A few pattern varieties use the Braided Hair large cent motif and these patterns appeal to collectors of that large cent series. The obverse only differs in the date size and shape, small and curved, compared to large and straight on the earlier cents. This piece weighs 140 grains, just shy of the suggested weight of 144 grains that is equal to three times the 48-grain standard of the bronze cent. Andrew Pollock records weights ranging from 119 grains to 158 grains, with most pieces falling in the 136- to 144-grain weight range.

Physical Description. Both sides of this Gem pattern exhibit reflective fields and bold design motifs. Considerable original orange mint luster is evident, intermingled with medium brown toning and delicate bluish overtones.
From The Eric P. Newman Collection. (PCGS# 70477)
