    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.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2VPG, PCGS# 11654)
