    1881 Barber-Designed Cent in Aluminum
    Judd-1667, PR67 Cameo

    1881 1C Liberty Cent, Judd-1667, Pollock-1867, Low R.7, PR67 Cameo NGC. CAC. The obverse features Charles Barber's Liberty head design normally associated with 1883 to 1913 nickels, although here in diminutive form with the date below and UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around. The reverse has a tall Roman numeral I surrounded by a wreath of wheat and cotton. Struck in aluminum with a plain edge. About a half dozen examples are known, according to, although we feel that figure is optimistic and fewer actually survive.

    This tiny pattern packs a strong punch with brilliant light gray surfaces and excellent field-to-device contrast. Both sides are deeply mirrored with lustrous devices. Surface marks are limited to scattered lint marks and minimal planchet flakes as struck. An exceptional and highly appealing pattern cent.
    Ex: The Eric P. Newman Collection, Part I (Heritage, 4/2013), lot 4031.
