    1858 Indian Cent in Bronze
    Judd-209, PR66+ Red and Brown

    1858 P1C Indian Cent, Judd-209, Pollock-260, R.8, PR66+ Red and Brown PCGS.
    Ex: Simpson. This is the so-called design of 1859. It is popular as a transitional issue and was sold by the Mint as a part of a 12-piece set. This particular pattern has a centered date with clusters of five leaves on the reverse. Struck in either copper or bronze with a plain edge. The centered date / five-leaf clusters / bronze composition is actually what distinguishes Judd-209 from the otherwise similar Judd-208 variants, all struck in copper-nickel. Only a half dozen pieces are believed known. The surfaces of this finest known survivor retain a significant amount of original red on the obverse, less so on the reverse. The remainder of each side is colored light blue. Sharply detailed throughout.
