(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
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.
