1864 Bronze No L Cent, MS66 Red
1864 1C Bronze No L MS66 Red PCGS. Ex: Simpson. This was a
transitional year for the Indian Head cent. Examples were struck in
the older copper-nickel composition, and then in bronze. The
portrait also underwent slight modification, and designer James B.
Longacre's initial ("L") was added behind Liberty's neck. This is
an example of the older No L type, struck in bronze. Copper-gold
surfaces are practically flawless and highly lustrous with pale
rose accents. Each side is strongly struck. The reverse shows a few
clash marks, and lathe lines (as made) appear on the portrait below
the ear. Population: 54 in 66 (7 in 66+) Red, 3 finer (4/20).
Lustrous Copper-Gold Surfaces
Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 227L, PCGS# 2078)
