    Premium Gem Proof 1877 Indian Cent

    1877 1C PR66 Red PCGS. With a mintage of at least 900 pieces, the proof 1877 Indian Head cent is comparable in overall rarity to the other proof cents of the 1870s. The elusiveness of business strike 1877 cents transfers considerable date collector pressure to most extant proof specimens. Above the PR65 grade level, however, the few certified representatives possess undeniable rarity that has little to do with the date that they bear. This is simply a gorgeous, lustrous Premium Gem proof. Modestly reflective, the surfaces show pleasant copper-pink luster and the strike elicits every last design feature. Free of hairlines, a few minor carbon flecks are noted on the obverse. Population: 11 in 66 Red, 2 finer (1/06).(Registry values: N7079)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 229W, PCGS# 2320)

    Weight: 3.11 grams

    Metal: 95% Copper, 5% Tin and Zinc
