    I just received some coins from my aunt that her uncle owned before he passed away. I just noticed an 1863 Indian Head Cent, I think, the date is rough looking but from all signs the wreath on back is just like the others in that period, except for the small shield on top between the wreaths is missing and in its place is the word NOT, as in NOT ONE CENT! The word NOT looks as if it was added to the coin bc it isnt exactly centered above the ONE. I havent seen an example of this and therefore had to come here again for great clarification. I will try to scan the coin later today and some of the other nice coins I got my hands on.

    Thanks. No wonder I can't find it under coins!

    If you post pics of the 1863 Indian Head "Not One Cent" and the "Army & Navy" one (also a Civil War Patriotic token), I will be glad to id them for you and tell a little about them. Pics would be most helpful as there are nearly 100 different Indian Head dies, 36 "Not One Cent" dies, and 36 Army/Navy dies. There are plenty of die combinations, not to mention metal possibilities. The Army/Navy dies were also paired with non-Indian Head dies.
