    1853 Cent, Struck in German Silver
    Judd-150 Thin Planchet, PR63

    1853 E1C One Cent, Judd-150 Thin Planchet, Pollock-178, Low R.7, PR63 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. A regular obverse die for the Liberty quarter eagle was paired with a laurel wreath reverse bearing the denomination, ONE CENT. Struck in German silver alloy with a reeded edge. Various experimental compositions were proposed for the one cent denomination, including German silver, a composition that does not include any silver, but consists of 30% nickel, 60% copper, and 10% zinc, per the website. Finally, when the new small cents were issued a few years later, copper-nickel was the chosen composition. Splashes of gold toning accompany the blue-gray color of this nicely detailed pattern cent. Population: 3 in 63, 5 finer (1/21).

    The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
