    1850 Annular Cent in Billon
    Judd-119 Original, PR65

    1850 P1C One Cent, Judd-119 Original, Pollock-134, Low R.6, PR65 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse displays the denomination CENT at the top, the date 1850 at the bottom, two rosettes at the sides, and a perforation in the center. The shattered reverse has the inscriptions USA and ONE TENTH SILVER around. Struck in billon (10% silver, 90% copper) with a plain edge and medal turn. An early experiment to reduce the size of the cent, this design was struck in billon, copper, and copper-nickel composition, with and without the central perforation. The billon pieces, with perforation (Judd-119) are thought to be originals. This sharply detailed Gem offers well-preserved surfaces, with hints of russet, golden-tan, and amber toning. Population: 7 in 65, 0 finer (1/21).

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2983, PCGS# 11511)
