(ND) General Motors 1C P-4060 (R-5) ANACS MS-63RB. Struck sometime between 1964 and 1969, these were made by General Motors in Warren, Michigan. The intention was to produce a high-speed roller machine, which was capable of striking 10,000 cents per minute. The experiment soon proved to be a failure, as the dies often broke and striking characteristics were not up to the latest standards of the US mint.

General Motors used a fantasy design, as production of regular cents was not legal. A female head is on the obverse, and a laurel wreath is on the reverse. On both sides a number of fantasy words are seen. Another interesting characteristic are the figures “5 L” on the obverse fields. This means that this coin was struck from the 5th die on the left side.

A nicely toned piece, the present coin is a nice example of this ever-popular modern pattern. Although not made by the US mint, this coin is closely related to that and experiments to improve coinage methods. We are always looking for these pieces, so if you have any, please offer them to us and we will offer you a very competitive price.

Happy Collecting,
