Canada One Cent Essai/Pattern, 1858 - CH PC-2, PCGS SP63 RB. Bronze specimen, uniface design that is similar to PC-1. Mirror like finish in the fields combined with razor sharp details, eye-appeal is significantly finer than that suggested by the assigned grade. Close examination reveals a tiny spot, but no significant flaws. A pleasing example of the first-year essaie issue, as described in Charlton. All patterns and trials are considered rare and highly sought after. Only 3 known, one finer. Ex: Norweb.
