    1864 Indian Cent Pattern in Pure Copper
    Judd-356a, MS64 Brown

    1864 1C One Cent, Judd-356a, Pollock-427, R.6, MS64 Brown NGC. CAC.
    Design.
    The regular dies for the Indian cent, without L, struck in copper with a plain edge. The NGC label identifies this 2.5 gram specimen as 100% copper.

    Commentary. The envelope accompanying this piece identifies the composition as oroide, and the attribution as Judd-353, a copper and aluminum alloy. However, as Dr. Judd noted, color alone is insufficient to identify the composition. This piece appears to be copper-nickel, but was tested and found to be pure copper.

    Physical Description. Yellowish-gray surfaces exhibit bold details with subdued luster, showing splashes of flashy tan on the reverse. Both sides have a hazy appearance with a few small toning flecks.

    Provenance. "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $35; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
    From The Eric P. Newman Collection.

    Truth Seeker: The Life of Eric P. Newman (softcover)
    A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
