    1859 Indian Cent in Copper-Nickel
    Judd-228, MS64

    1859 1C Indian Cent, Judd-228, Pollock-272, R.1, MS64 NGC. CAC. The Indian Head cent design was adopted in 1859 based on pattern issues of 1858, new designs and modifications continued to be made during the introductory year, the most famous of which is Judd-228. The obverse is struck from the regular die and the reverse displays a new oak wreath and a narrow shield at the top. Struck in copper-nickel with a plain edge. This pattern is light in color and it is immediately apparent it is copper-nickel composition. A short, diagonal mark on the back of the Indian's portrait is all that keeps this from an even higher grade.
