1864 Indian Cent PCGS MS63 RB, Bronze. A very nice and affordable Civil War cent, in uncirculated condition with a considerable amount of original Mint red still remaining. First year of issue for the Bronze cent, this composition would be used for the remaining issues of the Indian Head cents and a large number of Lincoln cents.
The obverse is of much higher quality, possibly gem, making this a great coin at a fraction of the prize of a true graded gem. CAC has verified only 1 coin ( this one ) in MS-63 RB and only 5 higher as of 1/28-2010.
