This year is known for the many pattern cents produced. Included among the many cent designs is the 12 piece sets made from 3 obverse dies and 4 reverse dies. These were sold to collectors and also used in trades for Washingtoniana. We show each obverse design with a different reverse excluding the regular reverse used on the flying eagle cents of this year. To view the entire set, click here.
