    1854 Seated Liberty Cent
    PR64 Red and Brown, Judd-159

    1854 E1C One Cent, Judd-159, Pollock-186, High R.7, PR64 Red and Brown NGC. Ex: Empire Sale / Exemplar Collection. Eagle Eye Photo Seal, card included. Pollock believes that the obverse die was created from a crudely reduced 1851 Seated Dollar die using the portrait lathe. The reverse features a prominent "1 CENT" denominational legend within a wreath of oak leaves and acorns. Struck in copper with a plain edge. The present Choice example has substantial mint red, perhaps more than any other example of Judd-159. The color has slightly mellowed to lilac on the central reverse, and minor gray spots are near the cap and star 7.
