    1870 Cent, PR66 Red and Brown
    Outstanding Visual Appeal

    1870 1C PR66 Red and Brown PCGS. CAC. Shallow N. Two die pairs were employed to strike an estimated 1,000 proof cents in 1870, but according to Snow only the first pair (PR1, as seen here) is collectible. Interestingly, the obverse die was also used to produce the 1864 With L proof restrikes. The visual appeal of this Premium Gem example is simply outstanding. Steel-blue, lilac, and magenta tints enhance chestnut-brown and copper-gold surfaces. Marks are practically invisible to the unaided eye. Population: 9 in 66 Red and Brown, 0 finer (3/15).(Registry values: N1793)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 229N, PCGS# 2298)

    Weight: 3.11 grams
