Description 1864 1C L On Ribbon AU55 NGC. Longacre's initial was apparently added to the master die relatively late in the year, since the copper-nickel and bronze No L varieties are much more plentiful. The present well struck cent displays slight wear on the shoulder curl and upper diamond. Traces of the initial red linger at the margins of the deep brown surfaces. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $258.50. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
