    1864 No L Indian Cent Pattern, PR65+
    Copper and Aluminum Alloy, Judd-355

    1864 1C No L Indian Cent, Judd-355, Pollock-425, High R.7, PR65+ PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse and reverse are both from the regular dies used to coin 1864 Indian cents, of the type not having James Longacre's "L" initial on the hair ribbon. Three different experimental alloys were used to create these pieces, all consisting of a combination of copper and aluminum, in differing ratios. Judd-355 was struck in a ratio of 9 to 1. The aluminum alloy gives these pieces a brassy yellow-green appearance. This Plus-graded Gem exhibits sharply detailed design elements and the well-preserved surfaces are lightly marked and appealing. Population: 1 in 65 (1 in 65+), 0 finer (4/20).

    Coin Index Numbers: (PCGS# 535077)
