Exquisite Red Gem Proof 1872 Indian CentSingle Finest Graded by PCGS1872 Indian Cent. Snow PR-1, the only known dies. Proof-66 RD Cameo (PCGS). Eagle Eye Photo Seal.Delightful rose-orange surfaces border on pristine with a silky smooth texture. The color is vivid and highly appealing, and both sides are enhanced by appreciable contrast between satiny devices and semi-reflective fields. Full striking detail rounds out an impressive list of physical attributes for this outstanding premium Gem.According to Rick Snow (2014), the Mint used only a single die pair to strike at least 950 Proof Indian cents in 1872 and virtually all known examples are well made. High quality Proofs are often selected for inclusion in date sets as substitutes for the circulation strike 1872 cent, an issue that is scarce in an absolute sense and rare in Mint State by the standards of its type. Of course, the Proof 1872 is also conditionally challenging; the present specimen is the finer of just two CAM-designated coins graded by PCGS.The Eagle Eye Photo Seal certificate is not included.Provenance: From the ESM Collection.
