    1868 Indian Cent in Aluminum
    Judd-612, PR65+ Cameo
    From the Garrett Collection

    1868 P1C One Cent, Judd-612, Pollock-677, Low R.7, PR65+ Cameo PCGS. Ex: Garrett-Simpson. Struck from the regular-issue Indian Head cent dies in aluminum with a plain edge. Only about 10 to 12 examples of this aluminum Indian cent variety are thought to exist today. PCGS identifies this as the Garrett Collection coin that was sold in November 1979 as part of the 16-piece 1868 aluminum proof set in the first Garrett sale. A splendid Gem Cameo proof, this piece has fully mirrored light gray surfaces with excellent field-to-device contrast. This is the finest of just three Cameo proofs that PCGS has certified (1/21).
    Ex: H.G. Samson (2/1882); Garrett Collection; Johns Hopkins University (Bowers and Ruddy, 11/1979), part of lot 396.
