Traveling out of state for work, I had an hour to kill so naturally I found a coin shop to go browse.

I just cherrypicked a raw Judd-300 Proof Indian Head cent (R-7) that was labeled as a regular proof that the shop graded PF63. It is a regular metal composition with a reeded edge. Always have to look at the third side of the coin!!

There are not many known! Crazy find....just had to share!
I will get better pics of the obverse and reverse when I'm home tomorrow.

Fantastic. Hard to believe a dealer could overlook that.

That's an amazing cherry-pick! That's why we do it!

Are you going to be slabbing this one? If so I would be interested in seeing the results.

Very neat. Never heard of it before, and likely neither did the dealer who sold it to you....

I will most definitely have this graded. There are a couple of very small spots on the reverse, but it looks better than the PF64s that are pictured on coinfacts. Those coins are spotted as well. So crazy to find this in the wild, most auctions say that there are a dozen or so known.

So a little more background..this was part of a collection that had just come into the shop this week. One of the regular customers (he had first dibs) was there and picked about 10 coins out of the bunch. I almost passed in this coin not realizing the reeded edge. Thought it was a gamble raw. 2nd look really paid off here.

The coins in that set came out of a very old cardboard holder, and there was an 1883 that had the most beautiful toning I have seen on an Indian cent. They wanted $750 for that one and I passed. Way too much of a gamble on a raw common date IHC.

I picked this one up for $700.

There are a few different Pollock subvarieties for J300. All are rare. More pics can help narrow that down. The US Patterns website states the following for P362:

Low date uncirculated format J300/P362. About a half dozen are known. According to Judd and Pollock, examples with fake reeding are also known.

Hoping it's the real deal as any genuine J300 for $700 would be an amazing pick!

Since none of us can confirm that this is a pattern, it is certainly worth slabbing to provide authentication.
