1872 Indian Head Cent in Aluminum
1872 1C Indian Cent, Judd-1181, Pollock-1322, R.8, PR66+ Cameo
PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The regular proof 1872 Indian Head cent dies
with a Bold N in ONE, but struck in aluminum with a plain edge.
This Judd-1181 pattern is a monumental rarity, one of two or three
known examples in this metal, according to USPatterns.com. Rick
Snow reports two pieces on his census. This example is number two
on the list after a PCGS PR67 Cameo example. With a pedigree that
can be traced back to the illustrious King Farouk Palace
Collections sale of 1954, this spectacular example is not only
eye-catching (an Indian Head cent struck in aluminum!), but also
exceptionally clean and attractive. Bright, unoxidized surfaces
exhibit profoundly mirrored fields and thickly frosted devices that
produce a stark Cameo effect. A wonder to behold and a trophy coin
of the highest magnitude.
