Description

1864 Indian Cent Pattern in Pure Copper
Judd-356a, MS64 Brown

1864 1C One Cent, Judd-356a, Pollock-427, R.6, MS64 Brown NGC. CAC.
Design.
The regular dies for the Indian cent, without L, struck in copper with a plain edge. The NGC label identifies this 2.5 gram specimen as 100% copper.

Commentary. The envelope accompanying this piece identifies the composition as oroide, and the attribution as Judd-353, a copper and aluminum alloy. However, as Dr. Judd noted, color alone is insufficient to identify the composition. This piece appears to be copper-nickel, but was tested and found to be pure copper.

Physical Description. Yellowish-gray surfaces exhibit bold details with subdued luster, showing splashes of flashy tan on the reverse. Both sides have a hazy appearance with a few small toning flecks.

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 @ $35; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
From The Eric P. Newman Collection. (NGC ID# 29GK, PCGS# 60525)
