1861 Indian Head Cent. A few spots of residue. Proof.

From the Dr. Jay M. Galst Collection.

This wonderful copper-nickel proof cent is part of an assembled 1861 proof set that Jay Galst had in his collection. The surfaces have the normal tan color of this metal with significant areas of colorful iridescent toning. The coin is virtually contact mark free. There are two tiny darker patches on the obverse, which are noted for identification. Sharp and with strongly defined ridges between denticles, devices and fields. This is a lovely example of this date in proof condition.
