1884 "Holey" Cent in Nickel, Judd-17211884 1C One Cent, Judd-1721, Pollock-1929, R.5, PR66 PCGS. 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. This wonderfully preserved example has a delicate bluish-gray tint and a few inconsequential reverse carbon flecks.(#62150) (PCGS# 62150)
