Description

1884 'Holey' One Cent, Judd-1721, PR64

1884 1C One Cent, Judd-1721, Pollock-1929, R.5, PR64 NGC.
Design.
The Eastman Johnson "holey cent" design. The planchet is holed at the center. The obverse has UNITED STATES OF AMERICA above and the date below, with no other design or ornament. The reverse shows ONE CENT above with an inverted shield and wheat stalks below, within which the fields are open. Struck in nickel with a plain edge.

Commentary.
Both one cent and five cent patterns of this year feature the unusual Eastman Johnson "holey" design, apparently spurred by comments that the artist made in 1870, according to the Pollock reference. Some three to four dozen examples likely exist today.

Physical Description.
The silver-gray surfaces demonstrate a modicum of field-device contrast, more so on the reverse than on the obverse. Some planchet irregularity in the form of light "waves" appears, possibly caused by the uneven pressure from striking caused by the center hole. NGC Census: 1 in PR64, 11 finer. PCGS Population: 4 in PR64, 27 finer (12/08).

Provenance.
Ex: Stack's (9/1985).
From The Lemus Collection, Queller Family Collection Part Two.
(NGC ID# 2AL9, PCGS# 62150)
