1850 Annular Cent in Copper
1850 P1C One Cent, Judd-121 Original, Pollock-136, High R.6,
PR65 Brown PCGS. 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.
