    Bright Gem Proof 1861 Indian Cent

    1861 1C PR65 PCGS. Eagle Eye Photo Seal. Beginning with a substantial original mintage of 1,000 pieces, there are probably fewer than 150 proofs extant today in all grades of this year. This is a very attractive example that has bright orange-red color over each side, the coloration being even more pronounced as it is backlit by the flashy proof mirrors in the fields. Virtually contact-free and an exceptionally attractive coin.
    From the "Newmismatist" Collection; the All-Time #1 PCGS Registry Set.

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

    Weight: 4.67 grams

    Metal: 88% Copper, 12% Nickel
