Description & Analysis

Judd-159a, Pollock-186, High R.7.

Design. The obverse is a die made by reducing an 1854 silver dollar, but in such a way that many details are blurry or indistinct, especially in the date. The reverse is a new die with a heavy, open wreath of oak leaves and acorns tied with a ribbon and bow at bottom, 1 CENT in the center. Many different alloys were recorded, but the Judd-159A, Pollock-186 is called a copper electrotype.

Commentary. Pollock notes that most examples offered over the years are electrotypes, said to have been produced at the Mint in such a way that they "have a clear ring."
