    Splendid Gem 1868 Cent Pattern, Judd-608, Ex: Bass

    1868 1C One Cent, Judd-608, Pollock-673, R.4, PR66 PCGS. Bass Collection. The design closely resembles the contemporary three cent nickel, but only a single pillar represents the denomination within the wreath, and the ribbon ends are more prominent. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. Struck from Die Variety I, as listed by Harry Bass, who apparently discovered and collected all three variants. This particular coin is identifiable as Bass:1014 by a small planchet flake that is out of the field at the top left of the Roman numeral I. Deeply reflective fields with lovely pinkish-gray toning.
    Ex: J.M. Wade; 1971 ANA Sale (Stack's, 8/71), lot 311; Harry Bass, Jr.; Bass I (Bowers and Merena, 5/99), lot 1014.
