    Important 1864 Pattern Cent Rarity

    1864 One Cent, Judd-356b (unlisted in earlier editions), Pollock-426a, Snow PT1-3c, R.8, MS65 NGC. The dies are those of the regular issue 1864 No L Indian Cent, but, while struck in copper-nickel, this coin was impressed on a planchet whose thickness most closely resembles that of the bronze Cents. Pollock (1994) was aware of only one example of this variety, the coin that sold as lot 656 in Stack's October 1992 sale of the Floyd T. Starr Collection. We do know of a second example, the coin that was offered as lot 7460 in our February 2001 Long Beach Signature Sale, and the present representative appears to be a third. Whereas the other two coins are proofs, NGC has designated this coin a business strike. Both sides are overall medium tan in appearance with blushes of delicate champagne tinting here and there. The date and the upper portion of the shield are indistinct, while the portrait and remaining legends are bold. For pedigree purposes, two miniscule green flecks are noted on the obverse denticles at 11 o'clock and between a pair of feather tips.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 29GM, PCGS# 60525)
