PCGS has mounted this coin with the reverse up in the holder. Annular, or ring-form pattern without the central perforation, the obverse exhibits the inscription USA above and the composition ONE TENTH SILVER below. On the reverse, the denomination CENT is above, the date 1850 is below and there are rosettes on both sides of the center. Struck in copper-nickel with a plain edge.<br /> Lovely medium-copper color to both sides, the surfaces otherwise satiny in texture with modest semi brilliance shining forth at more direct angles. There are no blemishes of note apart from a small reverse toning spot at the lower border.
