1869 Cent Pattern, Struck in Nickel, PR661869 1C One Cent, Judd-666, Pollock-742, R.5, PR66 NGC.
Design. The obverse exhibits a Liberty head facing left with the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around the periphery and the date below. Liberty wears a coronet inscribed LIBERTY. A Roman numeral I is centered in a laurel wreath on the reverse. Struck in nickel with a plain edge.
Commentary. Judd-666 was struck from at least three obverse and two reverse dies, designated Pollock-741 through -743 by Andrew Pollock. This example represents Pollock-742, with the 9 in the date partially under the curl and thick ribbon ends on the reverse.
Physical Description. The design elements of this spectacular Premium Gem are well-detailed, with just a touch of softness on the lower hair curls. Although not designated as a Cameo, the frosty devices exhibit definite elements of contrast with the deeply mirrored fields. Delicate shades of champagne-gold toning enhance the visual appeal of both sides. Census: 4 in 66, 0 finer (3/13).
