    1866 Indian Cent in Nickel
    Judd-457, MS66

    1866 1C Indian Cent, Judd-457, Pollock-531, High R.7, MS66 PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. Regular Indian cent die trials issue. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. According to Saul Teichman of USPatterns.com:

    "There is a strong possibility that these are also mint errors struck on stock intended for either regular nickel 3 cent or shield nickel coinage. One example was tested and found to be 80% Copper and 20% Nickel and weighing 47.84 grs which casts doubts on that theory, however. Only 2 or 3 are believed to exist."



    The only example listed by Andrew Pollock is the King Farouk coin. This Premium Gem is lustrous nickel-gray and struck from worn dies, with cracks, clashing, and evidence of die erosion on each side. The lower obverse and upper reverse dentils are incomplete, and the feathertips are soft. A hint of golden color is noted.
