    Gem Cameo Proof 1877 Indian Cent

    1877 1C PR65 Red Cameo NGC. A splendid Gem proof, this cent exhibits lovely cameo contrast with lustrous devices and deeply mirrored orange fields. Speckles of darker toning are evident on the obverse and reverse surfaces, keeping this Gem from an even higher numerical grade. The 1877 is considered the key date Indian cent, an issue that is highly desired in all grades including circulated, Mint State, and proof. The combination of full red color and vivid cameo contrast is seldom encountered on this or any other date in the Indian cent series.(Registry values: P8)

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

    Weight: 3.11 grams

    Metal: 95% Copper, 5% Tin and Zinc
