    1854 One Cent Electrotype in Copper
    Judd-159a, PR62 Brown

    1854 E1C One Cent, Judd-159a, Pollock-186, High R.6, MS62 Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse of an 1854 Seated dollar was rather carelessly reduced on a Contamin lathe, resulting in blurry device details. The crossbar of the 4 in the date is notably weak, causing it to resemble a 1. The reverse features 1 CENT encircled by an oak and acorn wreath. A copper electrotype with a plain edge that shows a notable seam. About a dozen copper electrotypes are known, plus two or three die struck coins. The present example in PR62 is a lovely shade of chocolate-brown with steel accents, including an area of discoloration right of the denomination.

Excellent prices when selling through their auctions and you don’t even have to put any reserves on any coins. Simply the biggest company but more importantly the best.
