    Description

    1853 One Cent, Judd-152, Pollock-140, R.7, PR 64 PCGS. An experimental one cent piece struck in German silver with a plain edge. The German silver alloy was intended to replace the copper Large cent, the eventual end of these experiments was the 1857 Flying Eagle cent. This piece mules the reverse of the 1850 cent that has ONE CENT inside a laurel wreath and an obverse simply inscribed *CENT*1850 around a circle in the center that was obviously an outline for perforation as with other cent patterns from this era. Interestingly, there is no mention of the country's name on the piece. This piece shows delicate pastel overtones and is the first we have seen of this interesting early pattern. (PCGS# 60152)
