1859 Indian Cent PCGS MS66

Description

The Indian Cent, designed by James B. Longacre, was struck from 1859 to 1909. This specific Indian Cent was struck in the first year of issue, 1859, at the Philadelphia Mint and is graded in Mint State 66 condition. Indian Cents struck in the first year of issue display a one-year-only reverse which showcases a laurel wreath reverse with no shield. Out of every 1859 Indian Cent struck, only 64 examples have been graded in Mint State 66 condition with just 11 graded higher. With such a low MS66 population and so few graded higher, this 1859 Indian Cent is not only a Condition Rarity but is also one of the finest known of the issue.
