Description

Interesting Copper-Aluminum Alloy
1864 Pattern Cent, Judd-353, PR67

1864 1C One Cent, Judd-353, Pollock-425, Low R.6, PR67 PCGS. 38.73 grains. The regular issue designs for the 1864 Indian cent without L. Struck in an alloy of copper and aluminum with a plain edge. This piece obviously had metallurgical testing done as the insert states: 92% Cu 7.6% Al. While this alloy is off from the accepted 13 to 1 ratio (93% to 7%) for Judd-353 pieces, it is closer than any other ratio known for this design type and composition. The coin also has the golden color expected, although on this piece there is significant greenish patina also present. The devices are sharply defined throughout. A few light planchet fissures are noted at the bottom obverse. (NGC ID# 29GC, PCGS# 60520)
