    Superb Cameo Proof 1878 Indian Cent, Ex: Floyd Starr

    1878 1C PR67 Cameo NGC. Ex: Starr. This is perhaps the finest known 1878 proof cent. It is listed as such in Ron Sirna's article on proof Indian cents in the December 2002 issue of "Longacre's Ledger." And it is truly an amazing coin. Deeply mirrored in the fields, the original mint red luster is unmellowed but does show a few faint streaks of lime-green on each side. Essentially a flawless coin, the devices are noticeably frosted and present a significant contrast against the mirror-like fields.
    Broken out of an original ten-piece 1878 proof set, Ex: Floyd Starr (Stack's, 10/92), lot 785.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 229X, PCGS# 82323)

    Weight: 3.11 grams

    Metal: 95% Copper, 5% Tin and Zinc
