    (1837) Cent, Struck in German Silver
    Judd-C1837-1, MS63
    Finest Example Certified

    (1837) 1C One Cent, German Silver, Judd-C1837-1, MS63 PCGS. The obverse legend has ONE CENT within an olive wreath, surrounded by a circle of dots. The reverse is similar but from a different die. This is a "two tails" pattern with slightly differing arrangements on each side. One side has 26 leaves and 15 berries, while the other side has 21 larger leaves and 13 berries. Struck in German silver, or "Feuchtwanger's composition" as suggested on (which would, of course, be the same thing). Plain edge. Only four or five pieces are believed known, and this is the finest. This piece was most likely struck outside the Mint, and seems to be related to the Hard Times tokens of the 1830s and 1840s. The surfaces are bright and satiny with die striations across each side. A few small specks of reddish-brown patina are all that interrupt the otherwise brilliant surfaces. The only other example of this variety that we have handled was an AU55 PCGS coin in the Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 6/2018), which realized $7,800.
