1863 1C One Cent, Judd-300, Pollock-360, R.7, PR65 NGC. CAC. Design. Struck from regular obverse and reverse dies on a standard copper-nickel planchet, but with a reeded edge instead of the usual plain edge. Commentary. Judd-300 is known in High Date and Low Date formats, with this coin representing the Low Date placement, designated Pollock-360 in that reference. The accompanying envelope notes this coin is struck on a thick (probably 75-grain) planchet. About a dozen examples of this popular pattern remain. Physical Description. The design elements of this impressive Gem are sharply detailed and the well-preserved surfaces have an attractive mattelike appearance, under a pleasing light brown and copper-gold patina. Close inspection with a loupe reveals no mentionable surface defects and no trace of carbon. Eye appeal is exemplary. Census: 1 in 65, 0 finer (3/13). Provenance. "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $50; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. From The Eric P. Newman Collection.
