This is an 1867 indian head cent obverse hub trial struck in copper. Dated hub trials are very rare.

Pollock states that the date was added individually to the hub striking afterwards and was not part of the hub die. The date does appear to be different in color in the available images.

The coin is believed to be unique and is ex Coin Galleries 2/91, Stacks 5/01.
