    1861 Indian Cent, PR64
    Beautifully Toned Low-Mintage Key

    1861 1C PR64 PCGS. CAC. A low mintage of only 1,000 proof pieces resulted in the 1861 Indian cent becoming the key date in the proof series. Because many of the proofs went unsold, numerous pieces were either destroyed or released into circulation, leading to a lower number of survivors than the production figure might suggest. The design elements exhibit a pleasing degree of definition on this lovely near-Gem displaying a variety of attractive colors, particularly on the obverse, including shades of golden-yellow, cherry, lime-green, orange, and wheat-gold. A few small carbon spots are present on both sides. Population: 60 in 64, 22 finer (5/13).(Registry values: N2998)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 229B, PCGS# 2256)

    Weight: 4.67 grams

    Metal: 88% Copper, 12% Nickel
