    1865 Indian Cent in Nickel
    Judd-406a, PR66+ Cameo

    1865 1C One Cent, Judd-406a, Pollock-476, High R.7, PR66+ Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. From the adopted dies of 1865 with the 1 in the date even with the left edge of the truncation of the bust. Struck in nickel or nickel-silver composition with a plain edge. The silver-nickel alloy seems unlikely, due to the extensive research done by David Cassel in the area of Postage Currency patterns; basically, the two metals do not mix to form a usable alloy. This is a remarkably bright, vibrant piece and is definitely suggestive of a nickel alloy. Deeply reflective with starkly contrasting devices.

    Coin Index Numbers: (PCGS# 534966)
