Description & Analysis

Judd-149, Pollock-178, High R.6.

A regular issue Liberty quarter eagle obverse die is paired with a simple die that bears a wreath and the widely separated denomination ONE/CENT. An early attempt to replace the cumbersome large cent with a smaller diameter piece in different alloy. Judd-149 has a reeded edge, and is struck in a white metal alloy of 40% nickel, 40% copper, and 20% zinc. Judd-150 and Judd-151 were struck from the same dies, but with different proportions of the same three metals.
