Lot Details
1877 1C PR66RD PCGS
1877 1C Proof 66 Red PCGS
Frosty golden-orange devices and mirror fields form a bold cameo contrast on the obverse. The surfaces are as choice overall as one would expect from the lofty grade. Proofs of this key date are often selected to round out collections owing to the rarity of nice Mint State examples. Among the dates of Indian cents, 1877 is far and away the most famous. Although in Proof format, as here, some dates are rarer, probably only 1,250 to 2,500 Proofs were struck, making it a key issue in this regard, in addition to the appeal of the date. The glorious part of the coin lies in its high PCGS grade and also the attribution of RD color. Few equivalent pieces exist in all of numismatics. Among the 13 finest RD Proof examples seen by PCGS.
