    1864 1C One Cent, Judd-356, Pollock-426, Low R.6, MS64 PCGS. CAC. The Mint experimented with several different coinage alloys in 1864, and used the regular working dies for the cent denomination to strike the patterns.

The surfaces show substantial coppery-red luster, with faintly dappled burgundy overtones on each side. The headdress feather tips are not fully defined, and there are prominent clash marks in the obverse field. estimates as few as a dozen examples are known. Population: 1 in 64, 1 finer (8/14).
