    Popular Transitional 1859 Indian Cent Pattern
    Judd-228, MS65

    1859 1C Indian Cent, Judd-228, Pollock-272, R.1, MS65 NGC. CAC. The famous transitional cent with the design as adopted in 1860, but here dated 1859. These pieces were struck in both proof and business strike format. The 1859 patterns of this design have the oak wreath with shield design on the reverse, with the regular Indian cent obverse. Struck in copper-nickel with a plain edge. states: "Metallurgical analysis is recommended as color inspection which is often used is unreliable." However, there is no mistaking the composition of this piece. Each side is bright and the colors are pale blue and rose, not colors normally seen on copper coins. The reverse fields certainly seem deep enough for designation as a proof, but the obverse does show some cartwheel luster.
