    1854 One Cent in German Silver Alloy
    Judd-157 Experimental, PR63

    1854 E1C One Cent, Judd-157, Pollock-185, High R.7, PR63 PCGS. 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. According to USPatterns.com, more than a dozen examples exist in various German silver compositions. Deep steel-gray surfaces are slightly muted and exhibit reddish-gold accents primarily on the reverse. Circular lathe lines are prominent on the obverse, as always seen on Judd-157 patterns.
