    1877 Indian Cent, PR66 Red
    Rarely Seen Finer

    1877 1C PR66 Red PCGS. The mintage for 1877 proof Indian cents was not recorded. The 2020 Guide Book estimates about 1,250-1,500 examples were struck, but some coins may have gone unsold. The remainders were probably destroyed or released into circulation after the end of the year. All the proofs were struck with Bold N reverse dies.

    This spectacular Premium Gem exhibits sharply detailed design elements throughout. The T in CENT has a bulging pennant on the right (facing) side that identifies the die used to strike at least some proofs every year from 1872 to 1878. The fields are hazily reflective and the original red surfaces are virtually flawless. Population: 11 in 66 Red, 2 finer (1/20).(Registry values: N7079)

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

    Weight: 3.11 grams

    Metal: 95% Copper, 5% Tin and Zinc
