Attractive 1866 Indian Cent Pattern
1866 1C One Cent, Judd-456, Pollock-530, Low R.7, PR63 NGC.
Design. Both obverse and reverse are the regular-issue dies of 1866. Struck in copper-nickel with a plain edge.
Commentary. Traditionally classified as patterns, examples of Judd-456 may simply be Mint errors. Most specimens are struck on planchets that meet the specifications of the old copper-nickel cents--standard issue until 1864. It is possible that a few leftover planchets were mixed in with the regular stock in 1866 and coined by accident. Another theory is that the coins were struck clandestinely for sale to collectors. Approximately one dozen examples are extant.
Physical Description. Bold detail shows on all design elements. Brilliant mint "white" color is intermingled with a touch of golden-brown toning. A few scattered handling marks are consistent with the grade. NGC Census: This is the sole example graded by this service. PCGS Population: 2 in PR63, 6 finer (12/08).
Provenance. Ex: Stack's private treaty transaction.
