    1860 Indian Cent, MS67+
    Bright, Original Surfaces

    1860 1C MS67+ PCGS. CAC. This highly lustrous Superb Gem is nearly unabraded, and carbon is virtually imperceptible, even beneath a strong lens. The bright tan-golden surfaces are light throughout, and the strike is bold aside from the tips of a few headdress feathers. The 1860 has a mintage of 20.6 million pieces, much less than the prior year's emission of 36.4 million pieces, although the 1859 is valued more highly because of its status as a single-year type. 1860 cents are available in middle Uncirculated grades, but Superb Gems are exceptionally rare. Encapsulated in a green label holder. Population: 11 in 67 (1 in 67+), 0 finer. CAC: 5 in 67, 0 finer (5/19).
    Ex: Denver Signature (Heritage, 8/2006), lot 5054.

    Thanks to Heritage I realized a handsome profit for my coin submissions and intend to send most of the remainder of my collection to Heritage Auction Galleries for future auctions.
