Lot Description
1860 1C PR65 NGC. Orange and honey-gold hues vie for space on this sharply struck Gem 1860 Indian cent, an issue that is technically a first-year type, since the singleton 1859 subtype featured the Laurel Wreath reverse. The reverse shows considerable cameo contrast. Bowers' series reference points out that of the 1,000 proofs made, all of the Broad Bust or Rounded Bust style, more than 450 were melted or released into circulation. Census: 32 in 65, 22 finer (8/11).
