    1869 Cent Struck in Nickel
    Judd-666, PR66

    1869 1C One Cent, Judd-666, Pollock-742, R.5, PR66 NGC. 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. 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. 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.
    Ex: Eric P. Newman Collection, Part I (Heritage, 4/2013), lot 3967, where it realized $4,406.25.
