    Very Scarce 1850 Ring Cent Pattern, Judd-121

    1850 P1C One Cent, Judd-121 Original, Pollock-136, R.7, AU50 ANACS. Franklin Peale's design for an annular (ring-form) pattern cent, which was modeled after Christian Gobrecht's gold dollar pattern of 1836. The obverse has CENT above the hole, the date below, and two rosettes, one on each side. The reverse has USA above and the alloy of billon listed below: ONE TENTH SILVER. Struck in copper with a plain edge. Deep steel-brown surfaces with multiple die cracks on the reverse that seem to be diagnostic for this rare early pattern.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2986, PCGS# 11518)
