1877 Cent, PR65 Red Cameo
1877 1C PR65 Red Cameo PCGS. CAC. The mintage of the 1877
proof cent is in dispute. Walter Breen in his Complete
Encyclopedia gives a figure of 510+ produced. Research by R.W.
Julian revised the estimate to 900. The 900+ figure given by David
Bowers in his Flying Eagle and Indian Cent book is based on
his contention that at least 1,500 were produced, with unsold
pieces being destroyed or released into circulation.
Very Rare in This Grade
The present Gem Cameo offering is a simply beautiful specimen with fully original copper-orange color. The razor-sharp strike is far superior to that often seen on business strikes in this series, and the fields glow with an intense reflectivity that could only have been imparted by proof production methods. A great representative of the ever-popular 1877 Indian cent in proof format. Population: 2 in 65 Cameo, 2 finer (12/12).(Registry values: P8) (NGC ID# 229W, PCGS# 82320)
Weight: 3.11 grams
Metal: 95% Copper, 5% Tin and Zinc
