1850 Unperforated Cent in Copper-Nickel
1850 1C One Cent, Judd-124e, Pollock-142, R.8, PR64 Brown
PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Produced as 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 copper
with a plain edge and unperforated. Numerous alloys were used in
the production of these patterns and perforated and unperforated
examples were struck. Only two examples are listed as known on
USPatterns.com. The other piece is from the Byron Reed Collection
and is in the Durham Museum. This piece is distinctive not only
from the difference in color from side-to-side, but also by the die
crack at the top of NT in CENT at the top of the obverse. The
obverse retains significant original mint red luster, while the
reverse has mellowed to a rich aquamarine with slight traces of
Judd-124e, PR64 Brown
