""Super Rare"" I have a 1858 Indian Head cent that wasn't supposed to be used until 1859,I haven't seen one with J.B.L on the reverse yet, I'm pretty sure that design change wasn't released until 1864 with the L in the wreath.

( I'm no pro, it's just my humble opinion )
Searched 6.5 +/- Million Cents Since 1971

Perhaps not a mint issued coin, but a token?

First of all, that is not a genuine Indian cent, It should have
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around the rim, not stars
plus the First IH was not produced until 1959, not 1958.

Second, way too many photos, 1 good shot of each side
would have been fine.

Guessing this is some sort of Civil War era store token.

this is what you have. It is a civil war token. It is dated 1863 the 3 looks like an 8 due to wear. The word "NOT" from the reverse was likely filed off. I find that common enough among the Not One Cent tokens.
EDIT: It appears that the date was very weak to begin with and even on an NGC certified MS64 it is illegible. The word NOT is also weak on that example.
Either way, it is worth about $5.
