Description

Choice Proof 1859 Cent
Laurel Wreath Reverse

1859 1C PR64 NGC. The 1859 Indian cent is a one-year type coin, as the reverse was changed in 1860 to include the federal shield. The estimated proof mintage was a mere 800 pieces, and the issue is always in demand from series enthusiasts and type collectors alike. The surfaces exhibit a variety of colors when examined closely; including red, russet, golden-orange, and splashes of green. A strikethrough appears in the field to the left of the Indian's forehead. Census: 88 in 64, 55 finer (12/12).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 2299, PCGS# 2247)
