    Rarely Seen 1942 Cent Pattern, Pollock-2074

    1942 P1C "One Cent" Pattern, Judd-2054, Pollock-2074, R.8 (?), MS61 NGC. An experimental piece that was struck in various metals at the mint and in various plastics by private firms as a possible replacement for copper, tin, and nickel which were needed in World War II. The obverse design was apparently copied from the Columbian two centavo and the reverse from a Washington medalet (Baker-155). Struck in zinc-coated steel with a plain edge. Dull gray surfaces and lightly hairlined.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 7HV6, PCGS# 661000)
