    Fiery Red 1864 Indian Cent Metallurgical
    Trial Strike in Billon, Judd-356
    MS65 Red and Brown

    1864 1C One Cent, Judd-356, Pollock-426, Low R.6, MS65 Red and Brown NGC. Struck from the dies for the regular issue 1864 No L Indian cent in billon (copper / silver alloy) with a plain edge. Much experimentation was conducted on various alloys in 1864, and a great deal has still to be learned about these pieces, their composition, thickness, and weight. This is one of the few pattern pieces struck in business strike format, rather than as a proof. The surfaces are bright with fiery red luster and just a trace of mellowing. The strike is absolutely full on each side with complete feather tips, full detail on the shield and wreath. A lovely example of this seldom-seen pattern, of which a dozen or so are believed known.
    From The Bob Simpson Collection. (NGC ID# 29GL, PCGS# 60524)
