Only 542 proof 1860 Indian Cents actually seem to have been distributed from an estimated mintage of 1,000 pieces. This is a very challenging issue to locate as a full Gem, a fact that speaks volumes about the importance of the present offering. Smooth, virtually blemish-free surfaces are both accurately graded and highly attractive. The color is a light pinkish-tan shade, and a sharp strike further enhances already memorable eye appeal.
