    1865 Copper-Nickel Indian Cent, PR65
    Judd-406, Pollock-476, Repunched Date

    1865 1C One Cent, Judd-406, Pollock-476, R.6, PR65 NGC. CAC.
    Design. The regular dies for the Indian cent, now including Longacre's initial L. Struck in copper-nickel with a plain edge. This 3.2 gram pattern contains 77% copper and 23% nickel, per the NGC analysis. The bust point is even with the left serif of the 1, and the date is clearly repunched, identical to regular issue variety Snow-1.

    Commentary. Andrew Pollock noted two different obverse dies. His variety 475 has the bust point well left of the 1 in the date, and variety 476 has the bust point exactly over the serif of the 1, as on this example. However, Pollock made no mention of the boldly repunched date on this obverse die.

    Physical Description. Along with quite a sharp strike for the high nickel content, this coin's brilliant light tan surfaces give new meaning to the term "white cent." This piece is pristine with reflective surfaces and minimal contact marks.

    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 @ $75; 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.
