    1874 Indian Cent, PR66 Red
    Rich Color, Sharp Motifs
    Sole CAC Example

    1874 1C PR66 Red PCGS. CAC. Eagle Eye Photo Seal, card not included. This lovely Premium Gem Red proof displays fully brilliant orange surfaces and complete design features on each side. Only an obverse pinpoint fleck or two prevent numismatic perfection. The die flaw at the base of the diagonal of the 4, Breen's "Repunched 4," is diagnostic of all proofs of this date.

    Population Data (3/15): This PR66 Red coin is among the six finest at PCGS and two similarly graded at NGC. There are none finer. This is the lone example of the date with the green CAC approval sticker.

    Heritage Commentary: The recorded mintage for this issue is fairly low (just 700 pieces), and the date is correspondingly rare in full Red grades. Only a handful of Cameos are known, and they command impressive premiums on the rare occasions when they are offered.

    Provenance: FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2007), lot 588; Dallas Signature (Heritage, 4/2007), lot 213; FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2010), lot 255; Bowers and Merena (3/2010), lot 219.(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 229T, PCGS# 2311)

    Weight: 3.11 grams

    Metal: 95% Copper, 5% Tin and Zinc

    The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
