Description

R.8 1864 Cent Struck on Thin Copper-Nickel
Planchet, Judd-356a, PR64

1864 1C One Cent, Judd-356b, Pollock-426a, R.8, PR64 PCGS. 49.2 gn. 87% copper and 13% nickel, per the assay imprinted on the PCGS label, and R.8 as such, according to Pollock and the latest Judd edition. The regular Indian cent dies with no L on ribbon. Pollock notes that these pieces were "struck on thin planchets resembling bronze Indian cents in size." Another example, in Stack's 1992 Floyd Starr sale (10/1992, lot 656), was described as having 170-degree die alignment, the same as the present piece. This example, which we believe to be different from the Starr specimen, has a silver tinge over the honey-brown surfaces. USPatterns.com comments that they believe these to be "mint errors on wrong thickness stock."
Accompanied by an Eagle Eye Photo Seal sticker and photo card. (NGC ID# 29GP, PCGS# 60524)
