1863 Bronze Cent Pattern
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. Population: 20 in 65 Red
and Brown, 2 finer (4/20).
