    1856 Half Cent, PR61
    Judd-177, Copper-Nickel

    1856 E1/2C Half Cent, Judd-177, Pollock-205, R.5, PR61 PCGS. Regular dies for the Braided Hair half cent, struck in copper-nickel with a plain edge. These metallurgical trial strikes were produced in anticipation of the Flying Eagle small cents that began production the same year. A chestnut-gold example with smooth, glossy surfaces and minor incompleteness of strike. The rims are broad and lightly brought up, as usual for Judd-177. A few specks of aqua residue are noted within the reverse legends.
    Ex: Brian Loncar Collection (Heritage, 5/2003), lot 6400, which realized $1,955.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 29AV, PCGS# 11777)
