David Hall: The 1864 is the most common of the early date "Type 3" (bronze) Indian cents in all grades, including Gem full Red. That said, it is a scarce coin by later (20th century) standards. Most mint state specimens are Red & Brown, though full Reds are available. This is a rare coin in superb MS66 condition and, like all early Indian cents, it is virtually impossible to find in MS67.
