Description

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.

Truth Seeker: The Life of Eric P. Newman (softcover)
A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
