    Rare 1942 Cent Pattern MS63
    Judd-2054, Alloy Similar to 1943 Cents

    1942 "One Cent" Pattern, Judd-2054, High R.7, MS63 NGC. Chief Engraver John R. Sinnock designed these cent-sized dies to strike various exotic alloys, none of which contained war-required copper. The obverse depicts a bust right of Liberty, based on the KM-198 Columbia two centavos. The reverse features a wreath and a central legend. Struck in zinc-coated steel, an alloy close to that used for the regular issue 1943 cents. The dull gray surfaces are granular and lackluster, as produced. Nicely struck and free from marks.
