1869 Indian Cent in Copper-Nickel
1869 1C One Cent, Judd-669, Pollock-745, R.7, MS63+ PCGS.
Ex: Simpson. Struck from the regular Indian cent dies in
copper-nickel with a plain edge. The flan cracks on both sides
suggest that this piece is broadstruck. As such, it is quite likely
from the Waldo Newcomer Collection. His piece was described in the
May 1935 J.C. Morgenthau catalog as "1869 Copper-nickel. Struck
without collar. Proof. Very rare." This impressive Select Mint
State piece has brilliant golden-tan luster and strong design
definition, presenting exceptional eye appeal with splashes of
delicate blue and lilac toning.
Possibly Ex: Waldo Newcomer Collection (J.C. Morgenthau, 5/1935), lot 340.
Coin Index Numbers: (PCGS# 410808)
