    Deeply Reflective, Fully Struck PR66 1861 Indian Cent

    1861 1C PR66 PCGS. Among specialists, the 1861 is known as a poorly produced issue in the copper-nickel series. Most of the proofs of this date appear to be singly struck and of inferior quality to other copper-nickel proofs. This piece, however, presents the collector with an atypical coin. The obverse fields are heavily polished, so much so, in fact, that they have a concave appearance. The reverse is more difficult to assess as that side is covered with a moderate layer of toning that is not seen on the obverse. Fully struck throughout also with none of the striking weakness so often seen. Population: 2 in 66, 0 finer (10/03).
    From the Palm Beach Collection.(#2256) (Registry values: P7, N9340)

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