1885 1C One Cent, Judd-1740, Pollock-1950, High R.6, PR45 PCGS....
Eastman Johnson's 'Holey' 1885 Cent1885 1C One Cent, Judd-1740, Pollock-1950, High R.6, PR45 PCGS. This annular pattern cent has a central perforation with a smooth, raised edge. The obverse has UNITED STATES OF AMERICA above with the date 1885/3 at the bottom of that side. On the reverse, ONE CENT is in large letters at the top with a small shield below flanked by laurel sprigs. Struck in silver with a plain edge. This is Eastman Johnson's design, a clever but eventually unadopted concept. This proof shows considerable rub on the sage-silver surfaces, consistent with time spent as a pocket piece, for example. (PCGS# 62181)
