    Very Rare Thick Planchet Judd-299
    Bronze 1863 Indian Cent, PR64 Brown

    1863 1C One Cent, Judd-299, Pollock-359, Snow-PT1b, R.7, PR64 Brown PCGS. This transitional striking of the Indian cent has the regular design of 1863, but it is struck in bronze with a plain edge with a medallic alignment. This was the Mint's first experiment with bronze and approximately 200 pieces are known today. Coins are known struck on both thick and thin planchets. The thin planchet variety is R.3, but the present lot is the very rare thick planchet variety, as can be seen within the PCGS holder. The present sharply struck near-Gem is richly toned lilac-red and olive-green. Satiny and free from detractions.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 29ED, PCGS# 60454)
