    1849 Three Cent Silver Pattern
    Judd-111 Original, PR63

    1849 P3CS Three Cent Silver, Judd-111 Original, Pollock-125, High R.7, PR63 NGC. These early patterns for the three cent denomination combine the obverse of a regular Seated Liberty half dime with a plain reverse indicating the numeral 3 in the center, with no further elaboration or ornamentation. This same design was struck in billon composition (Judd-111, 50% silver/50% copper) and coin silver (Judd-111a), but NGC has certified this piece as Judd-111. Struck with a reeded edge. We believe this obverse die is different from the various overdate half dime obverses called "1849/6" and 1849/8." The 9 is broadly repunched north, but the planchet has some interesting incipient planchet laminations on the obverse that cross through the date digits and interfere with the die details, making variety determination difficult. The obverse is reflective with some iridescent accents beneath a streaky layer of charcoal-gray. The reverse shows less color variation and no planchet defects. A piece that should be inspected in person, but a highly interesting early pattern variety, estimated at R.6 by USPatterns.com.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 297N, PCGS# 11485)
