    1863 With L Indian Cent Pattern in Copper-Nickel
    Scarce Judd-302, PR63

    1863 1C One Cent, Judd-302, Pollock-365, High R.7, PR63 NGC. The obverse features the adopted design for 1864 (but dated 1863), with the pointed bust truncation and Longacre's "L" initial on the ribbon. The reverse displays the standard oak wreath and shield motif used for regular-issue coinage in 1863. Struck in copper-nickel with a plain edge. According to Rick Snow, this reverse die was first used on regular coinage in 1871, indicating it was a latter-day restrike made for collectors in the 1870s. According to the USPatterns website, "It is possible that these restrikes are related to the 1863 two cent, 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." Approximately a dozen such pieces are known. This example has brightly reflective fields. The tan-golden surfaces are slightly mellowed, but the coin is readily identifiable as a copper-nickel composition.
    From The Bob Simpson Collection. (NGC ID# 29EH, PCGS# 60457)
