Lot Description
1860 1C PR66 S NGC. The Rounded Bust variety, as are all proof 1860 Indian cents. Proof 1860 cents are rarer than their 1,000-piece mintage might suggest, as 450 or so were melted or released into circulation due to poor sales (Richard Snow, 2006). Copper-gold, crimson, and sky-blue patina adorn the well cared-for surfaces of this Premium Gem that was awarded the coveted Star designation. The design elements are sharply struck, except for the usual softness on the feather tips. Census: 1 in 66 S, 0 finer with Star (10/09).
