The obverse features the Indian design with Rounded Bust used to strike regular issue Cents from 1860 through early 1864. On the reverse, a laurel wreath with clusters of five leaves encircles the denomination ONE CENT. Struck in copper-nickel with a plain edge.<br /> Sharp-to-full in strike, this bold-looking, reddish-tan example is kept from full Gem status by only a few wispy obverse carbon flecks. Popular pattern type!
