    1850 Unperforated Cent in Copper-Nickel
    Judd-124e, PR65 Brown
    The Only One Available to Collectors

    1850 1C One Cent, Judd-124e, Pollock-142, R.8, PR65 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 underlying red.
    Ex: Allison Park Collection (ANR, 8/2004).
