    1864 Bronze No L Cent, MS67 Red
    Lustrous Copper-Gold Surfaces

    1864 1C Bronze No L MS67 Red PCGS. CAC. 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: 4 in 67 Red, 0 finer. CAC: 3 in 67, 0 finer (1/21).(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 227L, PCGS# 2078)
