Lot Description
1877 1C MS63 Brown PCGS. The number of surviving 1877 Indian cents is much lower than the reported mintage of nearly 1 million pieces would indicate, and the issue has been rare since its creation. Only two obverse dies and one reverse die are known for business strikes, the reverse of the "Shallow N" (in ONE) style last used in 1872. This one die could not possibly have been used to strike all of the reported mintage, and yet it is the only one known to date. The present desirable example shows sharp definition on LIBERTY and most of the feathers, and nearly a full four diamonds. Some old clashing appears on the reverse.
