Extremely Rare 1863 Die Trials Cent in Aluminum, Judd-3041863 1C One Cent, Judd-304, Pollock-367, R.8, PR63 NGC. An elusive Indian Head Cent die trials piece struck in aluminum that is reportedly one of perhaps only two specimens known. These are the famous issues with Longacre's initial 'L' on the ribbon. They are actually restrikes using a reverse die from 1871, per Richard Snow. It is possible that these restrikes are related to the 1864 trime, half dime, and dime restrikes which were offered with the quarter, half dollar, and dollar which were struck with the IN GOD WE TRUST reverse. This piece has a few wispy slidemarks and freckles of carbon on the portrait while the modestly hairlined reverse displays a carbon spot at 9 o'clock. (PCGS# 60459)
