    Gem 'Ugly Duckling' Pattern Judd-114

    1849 P3CS Three Cent Silver, Judd-114, Pollock-128, Low R.7, PR65 PCGS. An unusually crude and simple design, one side has a large Arabic 3, the other depicts a Roman III. The denticles are slanted and toothlike. A mule of the reverses for Judd-111 and Judd-112. Struck in copper-nickel with a plain edge. W. Elliot Woodward, in his catalog of the Mickley sale, referred to this design as "the ugliest of all known coins and certainly one of the rarest." An undisturbed medium golden-brown example with a faint retained lamination (as made) west of the Arabic 3.
    From The Western Hills Collection.(#11498)
