Interesting Copper-Aluminum Alloy
1864 1C One Cent, Judd-353, Pollock-425, Low R.6, PR67 PCGS.
38.73 grains. The regular issue designs for the 1864 Indian cent
without L. Struck in an alloy of copper and aluminum with a plain
edge. This piece obviously had metallurgical testing done as the
insert states: 92% Cu 7.6% Al. While this alloy is off from the
accepted 13 to 1 ratio (93% to 7%) for Judd-353 pieces, it is
closer than any other ratio known for this design type and
composition. The coin also has the golden color expected, although
on this piece there is significant greenish patina also present.
The devices are sharply defined throughout. A few light planchet
fissures are noted at the bottom obverse. (NGC ID# 29GC, PCGS# 60520)
