Lot Description
1859 1C MS65 NGC. A large number of cents were struck in 1859 and a relatively large number were also set aside. Gems are scarce and as the only year of this design type, they are always in demand. This honey-tan example has a light, even overlay of reddish patina on each side. The striking details are strong throughout and the mint luster is smooth and satiny. Minimally abraded.
