    1854 Experimental Cent in German Silver
    Judd-157, PR67 Cameo

    1854 1C One Cent, Judd-157, Pollock-185, High R.7, PR67 Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. The obverse is derived from a Seated dollar obverse die, but crudely reduced by a circular lathe to a diameter of approximately 21 mm. The 4 in the date resembles a 1 because of the blurry reduction. On the reverse, 1 CENT is encircled by an oak and acorn wreath. Struck with a reeded edge in a German silver alloy of 30% nickel, 60% copper, and 10% zinc. These experimental strikes were produced in several different alloy compositions. This is the only Cameo certified by PCGS (6/20). The fields display remarkably deep reflectivity, a noteworthy achievement considering the hurried conditions under which these pieces were produced. Similarly, the devices are thickly frosted; thus, the pronounced cameo effect on each side. Untoned.
