Description

1868 Cent Pattern in Copper
Judd-606, PR64+ Brown

1868 1C One Cent, Judd-606, Pollock-671, R.7, PR64+ Brown NGC. CAC.
Design.
The obverse is similar to that of the issued three cent nickel. The reverse bears the wreath of the issued three dollar gold piece. The denomination is expressed on the reverse as a single plain Roman column. Struck in copper with a plain edge.

Commentary. This diminutive cent is essentially a reduction of the adopted three cent nickel design, the reverse is similar to the one used on Flying Eagle cents. The first appearance of this pattern in a public auction occurred in April 1870. Only a half dozen pieces are believed known with this obverse/reverse combination. This specimen is among the finest. Only one piece grades finer (3/13).

Physical Description. Rich olive-brown patina covers most of each side with a thin outline of red around the devices, most evident around the margin on the reverse. Even with the depth of color present, the mirroring in the fields is apparent. A few light spots can be detected with magnification.

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 @ $17.50; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
From The Eric P. Newman Collection. (NGC ID# 29MY, PCGS# 60818)
