    1881 Liberty Head Cent in Copper
    Judd-1666, PR65 Brown
    Ocean-Blue Toning

    1881 1C Liberty Cent, Judd-1666, Pollock-1866, High R.6, PR65 Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Charles Barber's design for a one cent piece with the head and wreath later used on the Liberty nickel. The Liberty bust is surrounded by UNITED STATES OF AMERICA instead of stars, with the date below. The reverse has a Roman numeral I within a wreath. Struck in copper with a plain edge. The variety was also struck in aluminum (Judd-1667) and nickel (Judd-1668). A well struck representative with ocean-blue fields and straw-gold borders. Wisps of russet toning surround the Roman numeral. A desirable Gem worth of inclusion in a pattern specialty featuring Barber's familiar Liberty head.
