1856 E1/2C Half Cent, Judd-177, Pollock-205, R.5, PR66 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. A proof striking from regular half cent dies, but in copper-nickel instead of copper. Plain edge. Judd-177 was likely produced to test the new alloy in preparation for the famous 1856 Flying Eagle cent. Judd-177 is one of just two pattern half cents; an honor shared with Judd-155. Despite the presence of nickel in the alloy, this high-grade specimen is predominantly peach-gold and rose-red. The open fields display electric-blue. The strike is good except on portions of the dentils. Pristine save for a few pinpoint flecks.
