    Interesting Gem Proof 1868 Indian Cent

    1868 1C PR66 Red Cameo PCGS. Curiously, the reverse on this piece is also rotated approximately 15 degrees counterclockwise. This date is notorious for rotated reverses with the majority of proofs having a medallic orientation. Rich mint red color is seen over each side with no evidence of mellowing. The striking details are razor sharp and each side is virtually devoid of planchet problems or post-striking defects. Very scarce with cameo contrast. Population: 2 in 66, 0 finer (1/05).(#82293) (Registry values: P4)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 229L, PCGS# 82293)

    Weight: 3.11 grams

    Metal: 95% Copper, 5% Tin and Zinc
