    Description

    1859 Indian Cent PR66 One Year Type

    1859 1C PR66 NGC. One of, and perhaps the finest of several Choice or better specimens in the sale, which is hardly an indicator of this one year proof type's scarcity. From an original mintage of 800 pieces, the majority are believed to have been subsequently melted. This example displays glowing tan surfaces and the expected razor sharp detail. Population: 20 in 66, 1 finer (4/03).

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

    Weight: 4.67 grams

    Metal: 88% Copper, 12% Nickel
