    1850 Annular Cent in Copper
    Judd-121 Original, PR65 Brown

    1850 P1C One Cent, Judd-121 Original, Pollock-136, High R.6 PR65 Brown PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. 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 shows USA above and the alleged alloy of billon listed below: ONE TENTH SILVER. Struck in copper with a plain edge and a medal turn. This early cent pattern has no clear-cut method for distinguishing originals from restrikes. According to USPatterns.com: "Both originals and restrikes are believed to have been struck and exist struck from both perfect and broken state of the dies." The reverse is heavily die cracked with cracks encircling that side; however, no cracks are seen on the obverse. Spectacular rose-gold and deep blue toning is seen over each side with underlying glossiness. Exceptionally attractive.
