    1862 Indian Head Cent in Copper
    Judd-290, MS64 Brown

    1862 1C Indian Head Cent, Judd-290, Pollock-348, Snow-PT1a, High R.7, MS64 Brown PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. The regular Indian Head cent design for the year. Struck in copper with a plain edge. Possibly three or four of these rare small cent patterns exist in this composition, plus two or three in oroide. Saul Teichman of USPatterns.com notes: "These were struck from business strike dies as were most off-metal pieces prior to 1863. The 2 confirmed pieces have different date placement, with the high date above and low date below." This is the high-date example. Rich copper-brown surfaces reveal iridescent accents in shades of peach-orange, magenta, powder-blue, and sea-green. Both sides are smooth and sharply defined. Carbon is minor, with a single mentionable spot in the left reverse field inside the wreath.
