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

    Transitional Shield Reverse

    1859 P1C Indian Cent, Judd-228, Pollock-272, R.1, MS64 PCGS. A transitional variety with the Pointed Bust and Shield reverse of 1860, but dated 1859. Struck in copper-nickel with a plain edge. Dealers and collectors have argued for decades that Judd-228 should be listed in the Guide Book as a regular issue, since its rarity is similar to the 1856 Flying Eagle cent, which was also struck in both proof and business formats. One difference is that Judd-228 is almost never encountered in grades below AU50. The present Choice cent has apricot-gold color with hints of rose-red. The strike is crisp, contact is absent, and the scattered carbon flecks require a loupe to locate.

    The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
