Additional Info: The values above are the the copper version of this coin. 1864 was a pretty good year for the Indian Head Pennies if you can find one in copper. Production dropped from 49 mil to just under 14 mil. As it goes scarcity creates value, so the 1864's are worth about 35% to 45% more than the 1863's. Just 370 proofs were issued this year and those are selling for around $900 if in proper condition. This was also the first year that this coin was issued with non copper versions. Again values and data above is for the copper version of this coin.
