    1857 Cent in Copper-Nickel
    Judd-186, PR65+

    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. 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.
