    1859 Indian Cent in Copper-Nickel
    Transitional Judd-228, MS65

    1859 1C Indian Cent, Judd-228, Pollock-272, Snow-PT4, R.1, MS65 NGC. A transitional pattern that combines the issued 1859 Indian Head cent obverse with the Shield Reverse first issued for commerce in 1860. Struck in copper-nickel with a plain edge. This Gem is interesting for the broad wire rim on the reverse near 9 o'clock, caused by a slightly misaligned reverse die. The strike is nonetheless crisp except on the top of the shield. Toned sun-gold and cream-gray with minor granularity near the U in UNITED and the C in CENT.
    Ex: New York Signature (Heritage, 10/2014), lot 4169.

    Coin Index Numbers: (PCGS# 10362)
