    Choice Proof 1859 Indian Cent

    1859 1C PR 64 PCGS. Razor sharp surfaces with a blush of milky rose-gray patina on the left side of the obverse, while more appealing orange and blue pastel shades on the balance of the coin allow full underlying reflectivity to shine through. The 1859 is a difficult one-year proof type with a reported mintage of just 800 pieces, of which far fewer are extant.

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

    Weight: 4.67 grams

    Metal: 88% Copper, 12% Nickel

    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.
