1884 Annular Cent Pattern PR64, Judd-17211884 1C One Cent, Judd-1721, Pollock-1929, R.5, PR64 ANACS. Eastman Johnson's "holey" design for the cent with the center perforated with an irregular circumference. These experimental pieces were intended to make small denomination coinage easier to distinguish by the blind, and thereby to "remedy the inconvenience of similarity in our small coin." The obverse bears the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA about the upper rim and the date at the bottom. The reverse shows the denomination ONE CENT at the top with an inverted shield and two laurel sprigs below. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. A few minor carbon flecks are detected on each side, the only logical deterrent to a Gem rating.
From The Dale A. Konigsburg Collection. (PCGS# 62150)
