    1864 No L Indian Cent Pattern, PR65
    Judd-353, Experimental Alloy Striking

    1864 1C One Cent, Judd-353, Pollock-425, Low R.6, PR65 NGC. The design is the same as that of the regular issue 1864 No L Indian cent, struck in a copper-aluminum alloy with a plain edge. A number of experimental alloys were struck in 1864. This piece is presumably a copper-aluminum alloy in a 13 to 1 ratio (93% to 7%). These are traditionally described as having a golden color, but on this piece time has mellowed the color to a glossy olive-brown patina. Not quite fully struck on the tips of the feathers of the headdress.
    Ex: Central States Signature (Heritage, 5/2005), lot 8306; ANA Signature (Heritage, 7/2005), lot 7254. (NGC ID# 29GC, PCGS# 60520)
