Stack's Bowers Auction August 2018 ANA U.S. Coins Auction Philadelphia, PA Aug-2018 1860 Indian Cent. Pointed Bust. MS-66 (PCGS). Bands of deeper bronze hues paint each side of this beautiful Gem, accenting the overall sandy-brown hue. The luster is supremely soft and satiny, with more dense frosting across the design elements. Well struck and without any distracting blemishes. A handsome and technically superior piece. The Pointed Bust design type was a hold over from the style of 1859, representing a transitional variety before the style was changed to a more rounded design later in the 1860. Collectors took little notice of this transitional design and it went largely unnoticed for over 100 years until mention in Walter Breen's 1987 Encyclopediaas "very rare". This supposed rarity has proven to be largely true in the thirty years since collectors have started scrutinizing the issue more closely, with only about 5% of the surviving 1860 Indian Head cents showing the Pointed Bust design. The present example is among the finest known of this very scarce population, with PCGS having certified only 11 pieces at the current grade and just 4 finer through MS-67. Provenance: From the Anne Kate Collection. PCGS Population: 11;4 finer through MS-67. PCGS# 2056. NGC ID: 227F. Click here for certification details from PCGS.
