    1860 Cent, PR66
    Seldom Seen Finer

    1860 1C PR66 PCGS. CAC. Broad Bust. The official mintage for the issue is 1,000 pieces, but approximately 450 pieces were melted as unsold, leaving a net mintage of just 550 pieces actually distributed. Current prices do not reflect the scarcity, although population reports clearly show it with less than 200 grading events for the issue. This appealing Premium Gem is fully struck on both sides, with mirrored fields and light frost on the devices. A bit of orange-gold toning appears on the reverse, but overall the coin shows a reflective, lilac-silver coloration. Population: 12 in 66, 0 finer (3/14).(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 229A, PCGS# 2253)

    Weight: 4.67 grams
