    Description

    1878 1C PR65 Red and Brown PCGS. Proof mintage totaled 2,350 coins, and this was the first year for which an exact mintage figure is available. Prior to 1878, the mint only kept track of proof mintages for the silver and gold coins, and paid little attention to the minor proof issues. This is a delightful Gem with fully brilliant orange mint color on the obverse, and mostly brown on the reverse. The obverse has considerable cameo contrast. A short, bright scratch is noted on the reverse.(#2322) (Registry values: N991)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 229X, PCGS# 2322)

    Weight: 3.11 grams

    Metal: 95% Copper, 5% Tin and Zinc
