    Very Rare 1862 Copper Pattern Cent, Judd-290

    1862 1C Cent, J-290, Pollock-348, R.8, MS64 Brown NGC. A metallurgical die trial, struck from the regular dies but in copper rather than copper-nickel, and of course, with a plain edge. The web site, gives the following information about this rare piece: "The regular dies trial piece. These are known struck in copper J290/P348 with only 3 or 4 known, and oroide J292/P350 with only 2 or 3 known. These were struck from business strike dies as were most off-metal pieces prior to 1863." Glossy, deep, chocolate-brown color shows equally on both sides. (#60439)
