    Gem Cameo Proof 1876 Indian Cent

    1876 1C PR65 Cameo PCGS. A difficult date to locate in better grades, the reverse die used this year is the same one used to strike proofs from 1872, 1873, 1874, and a few 1875s. It was lightly polished in 1876, removing some of the light die polish marks seen on earlier issues. This bright, cherry-red example shows just a bit of lilac patina intermixed on each side. The devices are nicely frosted and present noticeable contrast against the deeply mirrored fields. Population: 1 in 65, 0 finer (4/03).
    From the V. A. Everest Collection.
