    1866 Cent on Thicker Planchet
    Judd-455, PR65+ Brown

    1866 1C One Cent, Judd-455, Pollock-529, R.8, PR65+ Brown PCGS. CAC.
    Ex: Simpson. The regular Indian cent design, struck on a thick planchet. Struck in pure copper with a plain edge. This pure copper dies trial is thicker than usual, more akin to a copper-nickel cent from 1860-1864. Only two or three are believed to exist according to USPatterns.com. Saul Teichman leaves open the possibility these pieces may actually be Mint errors that were struck on bronze planchets of the wrong thickness. The Brown surfaces have taken on a distinctly deep blue color that is highly attractive. Nicely mirrored fields serve to enhance the piece's deeper color.
