Lot Description
1877 1C AU53 PCGS. Although the 1877 Indian Head cent does not have the lowest mintage of the series (that honor belongs to the 1909-S), it is probably rarer than its mintage (852,500 pieces) might suggest because just two reverse dies are known. Regardless, this is the preeminent issue for the series and highly desirable in any grade. Splendid mahogany patina covers this example, which exhibits smooth, clean surfaces. There are no marks worthy of mention, and the details are impeccable. A lovely better-grade key. Ex: The Jerry Kochel Collection (Heritage, 7/2008), lot 1107. From The MKJ Collection.
