Description & Analysis

Pollock-178.

This small cent pattern was struck in German silver. Struck with a reeded edge. The German silver alloy was a candidate to replace the copper large cent, but instead, copper-nickel emerged triumphant. This experimental piece paired the regular dies of the quarter eagle with a wreath reverse that bears the denomination ONE CENT. More than a dozen examples are known of two different metallurgical compositions of German silver of this design.
