    1850 Small Cent in Nickel
    Judd-124c, PR66

    1850 1C One Cent, Judd-124c, Pollock-141, R.8, PR66 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Part of an effort to reduce the diameter of the large cent. The obverse displays CENT and 1850 separated by two eight-petal flowers. The reverse exhibits a widely separated ONE CENT encompassed by a laurel wreath. Struck in nickel with a plain edge on an unperforated planchet. Formerly known as Judd-152a, the pattern variety was renumbered in the Eighth Edition to accompany others struck from the same die pair. Characteristic of nickel, the surfaces do not show the same depth of reflectivity as, say, on a silver piece with equal effort put into polishing the dies. Strike weakness is localized to the tops of CEN in CENT. The surfaces are lovely overall with almost complete brightness remaining.

    When it came to selling my coin collection I decided they were my first and only choice. They never disappoint. Excellent prices when selling through their auctions and you don’t even have to put any reserves on any coins. Simply the biggest company but more importantly the best. Consign with Heritage when you're ready to sell.
