Superlative Cameo Gem Proof 1877 Indian Cent in Full Red

1877 1C PR66 Red Cameo PCGS. Eagle Eye Photo Seal, card included. Here is one of the finest of just a handful of Gem proof 1877 Indian cents to survive. The surfaces are bathed in rich copper red, a color which has normally faded to tan or brown after 128 years. Furthermore, the surfaces are simply outstanding, with none of the usual specks or spots that plague these early proofs. Struck with all the force needed to bring up the devices, and with enough polish on the dies to impart the desired Cameo contrast on Liberty and the wreath. Precious few can compare with this stunning coin, and any collector will long be proud to own this coin. As the key date to the series pressure on the proof specimens has always remained strong as many collectors are unable to locate a suitable business strike of this date. At this grade level, not many are around. The combined NGC and PCGS population reports show 2 graded this high with none seen finer.(#82320) (Registry values: P8) (NGC ID# 229W, PCGS# 82320)
