    1858 Indian Cent in Copper-Nickel
    Judd-212, PR65 Cameo

    1858 P1C Indian Cent, Judd-212, Pollock-263, R.4, PR65 Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. This is a Centered Date variant with a rounded bust tip. Similar to the later regular issue Indian cent but with a broad, ornamented shield at the top of the reverse and broad rims. Struck in copper-nickel with a plain edge. The pattern was part of a 12-piece set that was sold by the Mint to collectors. Even though struck in copper-nickel, this piece has taken on a significant presence of red patina over each side. The fields are deeply mirrored and the devices thickly frosted, the combination yielding the always attractive cameo effect. Fully struck.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 29BU, PCGS# 811895)
