    Meiji aluminum Proof Pattern 1 Sen Year 39 (1906) PR62 NGC, KM-Unlisted, JNDA-Unlisted. An amazing Pattern issue of the 1906 1 Sen. No examples of this date were struck for circulation, as confirmed by Krause, and the few known copper issues were struck as Proofs. The only copper example of this extremely rare issue, that we have seen, was sold in September of 2011 at our fantastic "Dr. Norman Jacobs Collection" auction. J&V mentions this date as Extremely rare and struck only in Proof. Only two copper examples have been certified by NGC and PCGS combined. We can reference no sales of an aluminum Pattern of this date and type, with none mentioned in any reference books that we can access. This incredibly rare aluminum Pattern is the only piece certified by either NGC or PCGS. This piece displays nicely mirrored prooflike surfaces with a bold strike. A bit of oxidation is noted, with a few light marks, and flan flaws, consistent with the grade. Possibly the only chance that one might have to acquire this exciting pattern.

    明治三十九年(1906)鋁製樣幣一錢。  PR62 NGC。 經克勞斯所證實,流通過的幣值中並沒有記載此日期,只有少數已知的銅製樣幣。一枚極度珍罕的唯一銅樣,於2011年9月在我們精彩的"諾曼雅格斯舊藏 Dr. Norman Jacobs Collection"拍賣中出售。 J&V提到這個日期非常罕見,僅鑄造為樣幣,至今只有兩個銅樣經NGC和PCGS的認證。但是,我們未有找到此"鋁製樣幣"的出售紀錄,而任何參考書中亦都沒有提及,唯一通過NGC或PCGS評級極為罕見的一枚。這件作品展現了漂亮的鏡面表面和深峻的鑄打、帶點氧化、少許淺痕、胚有瑕疵,與等級一致。可能是令藏家們感到興奮的唯一機會。
