1857 Cent in Copper-Nickel
1857 E1C One Cent, Judd-186, Pollock-222, High R.7, PR65+
PCGS. The obverse depiction of Liberty is the same as on the
1865 three cent nickel, but stars replace the peripheral legend.
The reverse features the denomination within a wreath. UNITED
STATES OF AMERICA does not appear on this rare pattern. Struck in
copper-nickel with a plain edge. This design combines the high-date
quarter eagle obverse (Judd-189) with the reverse used on Judd-149
pieces. USPatterns.com states: "It is unclear if this is really a
pattern or a fantasy muling." The copper-nickel alloy retains much
underlying "whiteness" but each side shows a significant presence
of rich reddish patina. Sharply detailed.
Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 29B5, PCGS# 11815)
