    1868 Braided Hair Cent in Nickel
    Judd-610, Snow-PT4b, PR65

    1868 1C Cent, Judd-610, Pollock-675, Snow-PT4b, Low R.7, PR65 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. This is the so-called 1868 large cent. These pieces were struck with the obverse and reverse design used to produce regular issue 1843-1857 large cents. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. Seven examples are known in nickel and about a dozen or so are known in copper. The hardness of the nickel alloy is evident on this piece. The date area is noticeably incomplete, and slight softness occurs on the wreath. Bright and satiny, the surfaces are mostly untoned and show a fine speckling of carbon over each side.
    Ex: FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2004), lot 8440.
