    1864-L Indian Cent in Nickel
    Judd-359, PR62

    1864 1C One Cent, Judd-359, Pollock-430, R.8, PR62 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The 1864-L Indian cent is struck here in nickel with a plain edge. These curiosities were struck in copper, copper-nickel, nickel, oroide, and aluminum. The oroide listing has been discredited and proved to be struck in copper-nickel. The copper pieces may actually be bronze, and such doubtful pieces require metallurgical testing. Novodels were also struck, circa 1869 to early 1870s, and are from slightly different dies. There are only two known pieces in nickel and they are from the novodel dies, most easily distinguished by the right shift in position of the 1 in the date (when compared to original coins from 1864). The surfaces on this piece are bright and highly reflective with a slight accent of toning seen on each side. As expected from a nickel product, high-point definition (as seen on the upper feather tips and lines in the shield) is not quite complete.
