1857 Pattern Cent. Copper-nickel, plain edge. PCGS graded Proof 65. A flashy example. Lightly toned. A few insignificant scattered fly-specks. This delightfully rare pattern cent employs a head of Liberty by Longacre that is instantly familiar as the one he would use in modified form for his three-cent coinage introduced in 1865. Liberty wears a coronet inscribed LIBERTY surrounded by 13 stars. The simple reverse has ONE CENT within an olive wreath, and is the exact design of 1853 (Judd-149 to 151). Very rare with Pop 2 (PCGS # 11815) .
Estimated Value $8,000 - 9,000.
