    Another Proof 1864 Bronze Indian Cent, Eagle Eye Photo Seal

    1864 1C Bronze PR65 Red PCGS. Eagle Eye Photo Seal. Snow (1992) estimates that only 150 proof 1864 Cents were produced of this variety. He does not offer an estimate on the number of coins extant, but, judging by NGC and PCGS population reports, this issue is scarce to rare at all levels of preservation. This fortunate survivor displays interesting obverse / reverse contrast. The former side displays rich crimson-red luster. The reverse, on the other hand, exhibits dominant copper-tan color and scintillating pink and powder-blue undertones. The razor sharp strike is nothing short of extraordinary, and there is not a single grade-limiting blemish. NGC and PCGS combined have seen just 11 coins in PR65 Red, with just two (both at PCGS) finer (3/02).
    From the David Hall Collection.
