    PCGS 1853 One-Cent, Judd-150 (Thick Planchet), R.6, AU 55. An experimental one-cent piece struck in German silver whose metallurgical composition is 30% nickel, 60% copper, and 10% zinc, with a reeded 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 experimental piece used the regular dies of the quarter eagle with a reverse that has a simple wreath with ONE CENT inside the wreath. Interestingly, there is no mention of the country's name on the piece. There is a scratch in the left obverse field and just a bit of light friction on the surfaces.
