    1851 Unperforated Cent in Silver
    Judd-128b, PR64

    1851 P1C Unperforated Cent, Judd-128b, Pollock-152, R.8, PR64 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse displays the denomination CENT above and the composition ONE TENTH SILVER below a non-perforated center. On the reverse, the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA surrounds a laurel wreath. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. USPatterns states: "It is believed that these are restrikes struck on dime planchets." However, only three examples are known, placing this piece in the upper reaches of rarity among pattern issues. The centers are much lighter than the outer reaches of each side with dabs of deep toning seen around the margins of both obverse and reverse.
