    1863 Three Cent Pattern in Copper
    Judd-319 Original, PR64 Brown

    1863 3C Three Cents, Judd-319 Original, Pollock-384, R.5, PR64 Brown NGC. The obverse is similar to the Mature Head large cent design discontinued in 1857, only with the substitution of a curved and markedly smaller date. The reverse displays 3 CENTS in the center surrounded by a laurel wreath with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA about the border. Struck in bronze with a plain edge. This is one of the more interesting patterns created by the Mint. Fortunately 50-60 pieces are known in bronze. The fields on this piece are deeply mirrored and enhance the rich blue and brown patina seen across each side.
    From The Collection of William Rau.
