    1859 Indian Head Cent Pattern, MS65
    Shield Reverse, Judd-228

    1859 P1C Indian Cent, Judd-228, Pollock-272, Snow-PT4, R.1, MS65 NGC. While 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. Approximately 1,000 pieces were produced, possibly intended for circulation. This coin features faint pumpkin-orange coloration over minimally marked and well-struck surfaces.
