1864 Indian Head. L? Real error?

Hi I’m a new member and somewhat new on coin collecting and I am looking for opinions on my 1864 Indian Head Cent. My questions are does it look like a real error coin? Also is it the “L” version. And I know that a 1864 L is a somewhat valuable coin so if this was a “L” and it was a error would it be more valuable? 

                            Thank you! Pat

This is the wrong forum for your questions. Please repost in US coins.  Sorry I cannot help you with the answers as I am unfamiliar with that series.

The “L” is on the ribbon and yours appears to be worn off. The bust also looks rounded, whereas the L variety has a pointed bust.

If you plan on collecting these it would be worthwhile to invest in a redbook and also an Indian head reference.  I found this info in one of my redbooks since I don’t collect this type of coin.

Enjoy...

Not the L variety. It could possibly be a Straight Clip Mint Error, but i can't tell form those pictures. The 8 has been tooled or damaged.

The coin is damaged and low grade, so if it is an error, it's not going to be worth a pretty penny.
