    1872 Indian Head Cent in Aluminum
    Judd-1181, PR67 Cameo
    Ex: Farouk-Lauder

    1872 1C Indian Cent, Judd-1181, Pollock-1322, R.8, PR67 Cameo PCGS. CAC. 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 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.
