    1864 Copper-Aluminum Indian Cent
    Judd-355, MS65 Red and Brown

    1864 1C One Cent, Judd-355, Pollock-425, High R.7, MS65 Red and Brown NGC. CAC. The obverse and reverse are both from the regular dies used to coin 1864 Indian cents, of the type not having James Longacre's "L" initial on the hair ribbon. Three different experimental alloys were used to create these pieces, all consisting of a combination of copper and aluminum, in differing ratios. Judd-355 was struck in a ratio of 9 to 1. The red color that remains is bright, most likely from the aluminum alloy. Otherwise each side has streaks of dark brown. The strike is soft on the feathers on the headdress.

    The pre-sale publicity was more than I imagined, and the actual catalog better than I had expected - and my expectations were high!
