Hi,

I have an Indian Head collection and some of the pennies have a star by them. One of them being the 1864L penny.

the penny is not in the best shape so how can you tell if it’s an 1864 L penny for sure?

The "L" on the ribbon is one of the lowest points of the design so it is usually visible on even very low grade coins.  I can see it in your photo and here is where to look.
