    Impeccable 1859 Indian Cent, PR67+ ★
    One-Year Type Coin

    1859 Indian 1C PR67+ ★ NGC. The 1859 Indian cent is a one-year type coin, as the reverse was changed in 1860 to include the federal shield. The estimated proof mintage was a mere 800 pieces, and the issue is always in demand from series enthusiasts and type collectors alike. The present coin is one of the finest survivors, the only coin certified by NGC with the coveted PR67+ designation (7/10). The attractive surfaces of this coin display delicate, lilac toning on the centers, with shades of green and golden brown at the peripheries. The striking details are impeccable, and the fields are virtually unmarked.
    From The Bob Simpson Collection.
