    1859 Indian Cent in Copper-Nickel
    Judd-226, PR64

    1859 P1C Indian Cent, Judd-226, Pollock-270, Snow-PT2, High R.6, PR64 PCGS.
    Ex: Simpson. The obverse is the same as the issued 1859 cent. The reverse resembles the issued cent reverse of 1860 but lacks a shield at 12 o'clock. Struck in copper-nickel with a plain edge. This obverse / reverse pairing is scarcer than most Indian cent patterns from this era with fewer than a dozen pieces known. This is a deeply mirrored example whose obverse is several shades lighter than the reddish-tinged reverse. Light carbon specking is scattered over each side.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 29C5, PCGS# 11928)
