    'White' MS66 1859 Indian Cent

    1859 1C PR66 NGC. A splendid proof rendering of this important, one-year type coin. The surfaces retain almost all of the original "whiteness" of the copper-nickel alloy. In addition, the reverse shows a subtle overlay of oil-slick iridescence in the fields. Deeply mirrored and fully struck, this is one of the finer examples available of this first year of issue for the Indian cent with its distinctively different reverse. Census: 20 in 66, 2 finer (5/08).
    From the Estate of Robert R. Rollins Collection, Part Two.(Registry values: N4719)

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

    Weight: 4.67 grams

    Metal: 88% Copper, 12% Nickel
