Description

Interesting 1853 Cent Pattern
Judd-151, PR66

1853 P1C One Cent, Judd-151, Pollock-178, Low R.6, PR66 NGC.
Design.
The obverse is the same as that used to coin regular-issue 1853 quarter eagles. The reverse shows the denomination ONE CENT within a laurel wreath. Struck in a 40% nickel, 60% copper alloy with a reeded edge.

Commentary.
The Mint wasted little time designing this issue, combining an existing obverse die with a simple, rudimentary reverse. USPatterns.com estimates a population of approximately two dozen survivors.

Physical Description.
Sharply struck, with exquisite detail on Liberty's hair. Pristine pale-steel surfaces are accented by wisps of light gold toning. There is an unimportant planchet defect on the reverse rim at 12 o'clock. NGC Census: 1 in 66, none finer. PCGS Population: 1 in 66, none finer (12/08).

Provenance.
Ex: Preston Pond Collection (Stack's, 7/1942), lot 822; 61st Public Auction Sale (New Netherlands, 6/1970), lot 5; Public Auction Sale (Stack's, 1/1987), lot 478.
