1864 Copper-Nickel Indian Cent, MS63
Judd-356b, Thin Planchet, 47.8 Grains

1864 1C Indian Cent, Judd-356b, Pollock-426a, R.8, MS63 NGC. CAC.

Design. The regular dies for the 1864 Indian cent without Longacre's initial L, struck in an alloy of 88% copper and 12% nickel, with a plain edge. 3.1 grams. The obverse has a long diagonal die line that extends from the back of the ear down to the left, reaching the neck.

Commentary. This may better be classified as a mint error than a pattern, as it purports to be a regular issue 1864 copper-nickel Indian cent, except it is struck on a thin planchet that weights 47.8 grains compared to the standard of 72.0 grains. A similar piece weighing 51 grains appeared in the Floyd Starr collection.

Physical Description. All of the feather tips are blunt on this piece with other details more sharply impressed. The satin surfaces exhibit grayish-tan patina with delicate blue overtones.

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 @ $30; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
