    Judd-171a, German Silver

    1855 P1C Cent, Judd-171a, Pollock-196, R.7 -- Tooled -- Genuine PCGS. Proof, Unc. Details. An eagle flying left dominates the obverse. 13 stars surround, and the date is below. On the reverse, the denomination ONE CENT is centered within a laurel wreath, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is at the border. Struck with a plain edge in a German silver alloy. Judd-171a is listed as Rarity-8 in the 10th edition of Judd, but PCGS has certified examples in six different grades, and opines "about a dozen known", each likely with a similar yet technically unique copper, nickel, and zinc alloy. The present cream-gray pattern has a fairly soft strike and shows unobtrusive smoothing on the obverse field.
