Lot Description
1859 1C MS66 NGC. This is the first year of issue for the Indian cent design by James Longacre, and it is a one-year design type. Each side is bright and lustrous with pale gray-tan surfaces that are overlaid with light rose toning. The strike is sharp throughout. A couple of tiny abrasions are visible, along with a few minor specks; all of which are consistent with the grade assigned by NGC. Census 10 in MS66, only one finer (11/10). From The Prosser Collection.
