    1864 Indian Cent in Copper / Bronze
    Judd-356A, PR66+ Red and Brown
    Significant Mint Red Luster Remains

    1864 1C One Cent, Judd-356A, Pollock-427, Low R.6, PR66+ Red and Brown PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. Struck from regular-issue No L dies, but in copper or bronze with a plain edge and on a thick planchet. Only a dozen or so examples are known and most lack any trace of original red. This year saw numerous compositions tried for the Indian cent. Only a few have actually undergone metallurgical analysis. Other compositions include copper-aluminum in varying ratios, billon, copper-nickel (thin planchet), and and bronze (thick planchet). This piece displays well over 50% original mint red, which places it among the rarest examples in copper / bronze. The remainder of each side shows light blue patina. Fully struck, only light flecks of carbon are present.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 29GM, PCGS# 70525)

    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.
