    1942 Pattern Cent, Unc. Details
    Judd-2060, Brown Plastic

    1942 P1C Cent, Judd-2060, Pollock-4035, Low R.7 -- Broken -- PCGS Genuine. Unc. Details. World War II demand for copper forced the Mint to find an emergency substitute alloy for the cent, an effort that led to the 1943-dated zinc-plated steel cents. The present pattern is struck in brown plastic with a plain edge. The obverse motif is taken from the KM-198 Columbia two centavos, and the reverse shows the wreath from a Baker-155 Washington medalet. Burdette's third reverse, shown on page 18 of his reference to the series. The glossy surfaces are as made except that the piece is broken in two pieces just below MINT.
