    Choice Copper-Nickel 1856 Half Cent, Judd-177

    1856 E1/2C Half Cent, Judd-177, Pollock-205, R.5, PR64 NGC. Regular die trials striking for the half cent. Struck in copper-nickel with a plain edge. An important metallurgical trial strike that tested the proposed alloy for the Flying Eagle cents which were struck later in this same year. This is one of only two pattern Half Cents; an honor shared with Judd-155. Well struck in the centers, while the denticles are softly impressed. Lovely golden-brown and aqua colors. Population: 2 in 64, 1 finer (11/03).(#11777) (NGC ID# 29AV, PCGS# 11777)
