    1863-L Indian Cent in Copper-Nickel
    Judd-302, PR66 Deep Cameo

    1863 1C One Cent, Judd-302, Pollock-365, High R.7, PR66 Deep Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. 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." At least a half-dozen copper-nickel pieces are known. As expected, the fields are deeply reflective, which establishes a "black" background for the thickly frosted devices. Each side is light honey-tan with a dab of red at the top of the obverse. Fully struck with just a few pinpoint specks of carbon on each side.
