    1864 Indian Cent Pattern in Billon, MS64
    J-356, Nearly Full Red Color

    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. This specific piece was struck with the regular No L 1864 Indian cent dies, in an alloy of 90% copper and 10% tin (often called billon). 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. USPatterns.com estimates as few as a dozen examples are known. Population: 1 in 64, 1 finer (8/14).

    The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
