    1870 Indian Cent in Aluminum
    Judd-788, PR65 Cameo

    1870 1C Indian Cent, Judd-788, Pollock-875, R.8, PR65 Cameo PCGS. Struck from regular proof Shallow N dies with a plain edge, but in aluminum instead of bronze, originally as part of a denomination set struck in aluminum. Snow mentions a partial 1870 aluminum proof set offered by Bowers & Ruddy circa 1976. Only two examples of this extremely rare pattern have been certified, the present lot and the Simpson specimen graded PR66+ Cameo. This is the Snow plate coin (Snow-PT1) for Judd-788. A fully struck and untoned Gem that exhibits unabraded mirrored surfaces. A subtle retained lamination, as made, crosses Liberty's cheek.
    From The Dickson Collection.
