    Rare 1942 Experimental Cent in Brass-Colored Plastic

    1942 Cent, Unlisted in Judd, Pollock-4040, R.7(?)--Repaired--ANACS. Certified as genuine, but not graded. One of J.R. Sinnock's experimental cents struck at a time when projected war shortages led to consideration of various types of alternatives, including rubber and plastic. The Pollock-4040 pieces were struck from brass-colored plastic. Like all known specimens, this piece was snapped in half, and looks to have been glued back at a later time (thus the repaired qualifier.)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2APG, PCGS# 62400)
