1850 Small Cent in Nickel
1850 1C Cent, Judd-124G, Pollock-145, Low R.7, PR65+ PCGS.
Ex: Simpson. The obverse displays the denomination CENT at the top,
the date 1850 at the bottom, and one star at each side of the
center. The reverse is blank with the exception of border
denticles. The obverse design is similar to that used on the 1850
annular pattern cent (Judd-119, Pollock-134), but the center is not
perforated. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. This is one of
fewer than a half dozen pieces known. A veil of golden color thinly
blankets clean nickel-gray surfaces. A die crack runs through the
top of CENTS, as seen on all examples.
