    1864 No L Indian Cent in Aluminum-Bronze
    Judd-354, Snow-PT1a-1, MS67

    1864 1C No L Indian Cent, Judd-354, Pollock-425, Snow-PT1a-1, R.8, MS67 PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. This Indian cent pattern features the regular dies without the L initial on the ribbon. Struck in an aluminum-bronze alloy with a plain edge. Rick Snow explains: "Early in 1864, experiments were done with various alloys of aluminum and copper called aluminum bronze. These tests were done at the request of the new Treasury Secretary, William P. Fassenden, and scientists of the National Academy of Science." Cents were struck in various compositions that produced lovely golden colors when new, but which would discolor quickly. Judd-354 is struck in an mix of 19 parts copper to one part aluminum. One coin each is known from circulation-strike and proof dies, hence the R.8 rating. Both sides of this business-strike Superb Gem exhibit intense golden color and vibrant mint luster. A hint of softness occurs on the date, lowest ribbon diamonds, and shield.
