    1863 With L Indian Cent
    Judd-301, PR65 Red and Brown

    1863 1C One Cent, Judd-301, Pollock-367, R.7, PR65 Red and Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The Indian cent obverse is signed with James Longacre's initial L on the ribbon, as on the regular issue 1864-L Indian cents. The reverse is the regular issue design with a wreath and shield enclosing the denomination, ONE CENT. Struck in bronze with a plain edge. The website reports that about half a dozen are known, including one in the Connecticut State Library collection. Another piece in that museum collection is described as oroide, but may also be bronze. Indian cent expert Richard Snow reports that the reverse die was first used in 1871, indicating that Judd-301 and related varieties were specially made for contemporary collectors. This lovely Gem has vibrant violet, sea-green, and blue toning that accompanies substantial orange mint color. The devices are rich brown, contrasting nicely with the fields. Population: 3 in 65 Red and Brown, 0 finer (4/20).
