    1850 Annular Cent in Copper-Nickel
    Judd-124 Restrike, PR64+

    1850 P1C One Cent, Judd-124 Restrike, Pollock-139, Low R.7 PR64+ PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. This annular design features CENT / 1850 on the obverse and USA / ONE TENTH SILVER on the reverse. The obverse shows two eight-petal flowers between the inscriptions. Struck without a central perforation, in copper-nickel with a plain edge. Medal turn. The ring cents of 1850 were made in response to Congressman Sam F. Vinton, who drafted a bill in 1849 to reduce the cent's diameter. Judd-124 representatives without the central hole are restrikes produced from broken dies, according to USPatterns.com. About a half dozen examples are known. Smooth tan-gold surfaces feature wisps of coppery color on each side. Strongly raised design with bold cracks throughout the reverse. A few minor hairlines barely limit the grade.
