    1896 Cent, Struck in Pure Nickel
    Judd-1767a, PR65+

    1896 1C One Cent, Judd-1767a, Pollock-1981, Low R.7, PR65+ PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Charles Barber's pattern for a uniform coinage in the cent and nickel denominations. The obverse has a shield as the central design element, crossed poles behind, one has a liberty cap atop and the other an eagle. E PLURIBUS UNUM, 13 stars, and the date are at the margin. The reverse is simply laid out with the denomination in the center, an olive branch around, and UNITED STATES OF AMERICA at the margin. Struck in pure nickel (and as such it is magnetic) with a plain edge. At least a half dozen examples of Judd-1767a are extant. This Plus-graded Gem exhibits sharply detailed design elements and impeccably preserved surfaces, under attractive shades of lavender-gray and sea-green toning. Population: 3 in 65 (1 in 65+), 0 finer (4/20).

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2AM6, PCGS# 62221)
