    Rare Undated Uniface Cent Pattern From 1853, Judd-151c

    (1853) P1C Cent, Judd-151c, Pollock-179, R.7, PR65 PCGS. Cent patterns were struck in 1853 in an effort to replace the cumbersome 'large' cents then in circulation. On the Judd 149-151 pieces the obverse is adapted from quarter eagle dies while the reverse has ONE CENT inside a laurel wreath. The Judd 151b, c, and d pieces are struck from an unfinished obverse die with dentils around the border, but no lettering or motifs. The reverse is the same as on the Judd 149-151 patterns. The Judd-151 pieces were struck in a 40% nickel, 60% copper composition with a plain edge. Fewer than half a dozen pieces are believed known of this seldom-seen pattern. The copper-nickel composition is still light in color with one reddish streak across the center of the obverse and two streaks across the reverse, undoubtedly from improper mixture of the alloy. Very rare. (#62413)
