    Second Known 1864 Copper-Nickel Pattern on Thin Planchet, Pollock-426a

    1864 Indian Cent, Unlisted in Judd, Pollock-426a, R.8, PR 65. Regular die trial for the 1864 Indian cent, without L, on a thin planchet. Struck in copper-nickel with a plain edge. An extremely rare die trial that has only one listing in the Pollock reference. Weight: 2.93 grams (45.2 grains). On May 12 it was examined by Metallurgical Engineering Services of Richardson, Texas. Their findings revealed this piece is composed of 85.74% copper, 13.70% nickel, and 0.56% silver. Thus, making this only the second piece known of this newly listed pattern.
    The surfaces are hazy with medium golden-tan color overall and rose tinted undertones. The only striking deficiency is on the tips of the upper two feathers of the headdress. Of the greatest importance and rarity and sure to be of interest to many pattern collectors.
