    1868 Cent Pattern in Copper
    Judd-609, PR64 Red and Brown
    Scarcer High Date Variant

    1868 1C One Cent, Judd-609, Pollock-674, High R.7, PR64 Red and Brown PCGS. The design closely resembles that of the three cent nickel, except that the Roman numeral I instead of III is within the wreath. RI in AMERICA touch at the bases, and the base of the 1 in the date is repunched. Struck in copper with a plain edge. These patterns were issued in sets along with the 3 cent (Judd-618-Judd-620) and 5 cent (Judd-633-Judd-634). This is the scarcer High Date variant, of which only half a dozen pieces are believed known. The surfaces are bright red with a pale trace of lime-green around the borders. An exceptionally attractive piece.
