    1869 Cent Struck in Nickel
    Judd-666, PR64

    1869 1C One Cent, Judd-666, Pollock-741, R.5, PR64 NGC. The obverse exhibits a bust of Liberty facing left with the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around the periphery and the date below the bust. Liberty wears a coronet inscribed LIBERTY. A Roman numeral I is centered in a laurel wreath on the reverse. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. These pieces were struck in nickel and copper, from at least three obverse dies and two reverse dies. This piece pairs Obverse 1 with Reverse A: the date is right with the 9 centered beneath a curl, the L in LIBERTY is positioned beneath the 2nd and 3rd pearls and the reverse shows broad ribbon ends. The nickel-gray surfaces show a few tiny specks of carbon on each side.
