    1863 Bronze Cent Pattern
    Judd-299, PR65 Red and Brown

    1863 1C One Cent, Judd-299, Pollock-359, Snow PT1, R.3, PR65 Red and Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Medallic alignment. Struck from regular issue cent dies, but with a bronze alloy used instead of the then-current copper-nickel composition. This bronze alloy, of course, was implemented in 1864, which makes this pattern a transitional issue. Pollock lists four variants, all from the same dies, based upon the thickness of the planchet and the die alignment. This coin appears to be the thin planchet variety. USPatterns.com estimates about 200 examples are extant. The well-preserved surfaces of this attractive Gem exhibit significant amounts of red color, which is unusual for this issue. The design elements are sharply detailed throughout.
