Lot Description
1857 E1C One Cent, Judd-186, Pollock-222, High R.7, PR66 PCGS. A large bust of Liberty faces left, similar to that seen on the issued 1865 three cent nickel. The reverse has ONE CENT in the center and is encircled by a wreath. This variant combines the high date quarter eagle pattern obverse from Judd-189 with the 1853 pattern cent reverse of Judd-149. The denticles are different lengths on each side, which further suggest a muled die combination. Struck in copper-nickel with a plain edge. A gorgeous Premium Gem with blended cherry-wood and aquamarine toning. The mark-free surfaces are unabraded, and the strike is exacting. Close to medal turn, and the upper obverse rim is lumpy, as made. Population: 1 in 66, 0 finer (8/07).
