Description

1869 Cent Pattern, Struck in Nickel, PR66
Judd-666, Pollock-742

1869 1C One Cent, Judd-666, Pollock-742, R.5, PR66 NGC.
Design.
The obverse exhibits a Liberty head facing left with the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around the periphery and the date below. 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.

Commentary. Judd-666 was struck from at least three obverse and two reverse dies, designated Pollock-741 through -743 by Andrew Pollock. This example represents Pollock-742, with the 9 in the date partially under the curl and thick ribbon ends on the reverse.

Physical Description. The design elements of this spectacular Premium Gem are well-detailed, with just a touch of softness on the lower hair curls. Although not designated as a Cameo, the frosty devices exhibit definite elements of contrast with the deeply mirrored fields. Delicate shades of champagne-gold toning enhance the visual appeal of both sides. Census: 4 in 66, 0 finer (3/13).
From The Eric P. Newman Collection. (NGC ID# 29PM, PCGS# 60890)

Truth Seeker: The Life of Eric P. Newman (softcover)
A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
