    1849 Three Cent Silver in Copper-Nickel
    Judd-114, PR64

    1849 P3CS Three Cent Silver, Judd-114, Pollock-128, Low R.7 PR64 PCGS. CAC Ex: Simpson. An unusually crude and simple design, the Judd-114 shows one side with a large Arabic 3 and the other depicting a Roman III, a mule of the reverses for Judd-111 and Judd-112. The denticles are slanted and toothlike. Struck in copper-nickel with a plain edge. Fewer than a dozen of these patterns are known. Andrew Pollock cites Remy Bourne in reporting six known examples, but Saul Teichman clarifies that that total does not include the Pittman or Eliasberg examples. Additionally, he adds that while the dies were created in 1849, a composition of 75% copper and 25% nickel suggests production occurred sometime during the 1860s. This satiny pumpkin-orange example is fully struck with minimal marks.
