Description & Analysis

Judd-2056, R.7.

The obverse features a woman's bust right, derived from the Colombian two centavo piece. The reverse displays UNITED/STATES/MINT within a wreath. Struck in white metal with a plain edge. In his 1994 reference on patterns, Andrew W. Pollock, III wrote, "Although the experimental pieces produced in plastic and glass were manufactured by private firms, it is known that at least some, and possibly all, of the metallic pieces were produced within the Mint itself." The experiments culminated in the 1943 steel cents.
