    1869 Indian Cent in Copper-Nickel
    Judd-669, MS64

    1869 1C One Cent, Judd-669, Pollock-745, R.7, MS64 PCGS. CAC. 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)
