1864 1C Bronze, BN AU53BN Certification #28125652, PCGS #2076

Expert Comments

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.
