    Cameo Gem Proof 1877 Indian Cent

    1877 1C PR65 Cameo NGC. The 1877 is more available than the dates from the 1860s, but it is still a difficult issue to locate in the higher proof grades. Curiously, no precise mintage figures exist for 1877 proof Cents. It is believed, however, that probably 910 pieces were struck. It is known that 510 "silver" sets were sold, which included the five silver coins, the two nickel coins, and the Cent. Additionally, there were about 400 "nickel" sets struck, which included just the Cent and two nickel coins. We know that 260 of these sets were mailed out, with the unknown remainder being sold over the counter in Philadelphia.
    The surfaces on this piece are bright and show original mint luster with a modest contrast between the fields and devices. A few light specks of carbon are flecked over each side.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 229W, PCGS# 82320)

    Weight: 3.11 grams

    The pre-sale publicity was more than I imagined, and the actual catalog better than I had expected - and my expectations were high!
