    1859 Indian Cent, Sharp PR64
    Beautifully Preserved

    1859 1C PR64 PCGS. CAC. As a one-year type, the proof variant of the 1859 Indian cent is virtually as popular as its business strike counterpart. This near-Gem example displays razor-sharp design elements set against glassy fields that show blended hues of coppery-orange and olive color. A small toning spot is noted near 10 o'clock on the reverse, and a tiny carbon speck is hidden in the lower-left wreath leaves. Housed in a first generation holder, this is an immensely appealing proof type coin.(Registry values: N2998)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2299, PCGS# 2247)

    Weight: 4.67 grams

    Metal: 88% Copper, 12% Nickel
