1850 Annular Cent in Billon
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 (3/20).
