I believe it has just suffered a lot of post-mint damage.
The early Indian Heads and Flying Eagles were copper nickel. 88% Cu and 12% Ni.
Accounting for a whiter colored coin.
...although it would likely bring at least a buck or two on eBay.
As for the L, only a few copper-nickel 1864-L cents are known, right? In general, only copper 1864 cents can have the L.
In mint state (uncirculated/undamaged) these are five-figure coins. As badly damaged as your coin is, an actual silver-planchet cent would still be worth quite a bit -- but as others have said, yours isn't one.
Lol on eBay as the sky is the limit.
This is the 1864 Copper-Nickel with Oak Leaf and Shield reverse. Too bad is severely damaged as it's the rare type without the L. Yes a few with an L exist but we'll never know if this was one of them.
Not much due to the condition. It may be corroded enough to make authentication impossible to tell it wasn't created by someone now.
A lot of good people are trying to save you the Third party graders fees.
It does, but free advice is even more valuable.
