Stack's Bowers Auction May 2019 Baltimore U.S. Coins Auction May-2019 1860 Indian Cent. FS-401. Pointed Bust. MS-65 (PCGS). A smartly impressed, boldly to sharply defined coin with warm honey-gold patina to both sides. The 1860 FS-401 variety features the obverse hub of the 1859 Indian cent, identifiable by Liberty's pointed bust. Numismatic scholars suspect that a few undated obverse dies produced from the 1859 hub were carried over into 1860, when the date was added and they were used to strike a small portion of the 20,556,000-piece circulation strike mintage of the latter year. Examples are scarce to rare in all grades, Rick Snow (2014) providing an approximate mintage of just 1,000,000 circulation strikes for the 1860 Pointed Bust. This is one of the finer certified pieces available to today's quality conscious numismatists, a lovely coin that would fit comfortably into an advanced Indian cent collection. PCGS Population: 46; 20 finer (MS-67 finest). PCGS# 2056. NGC ID: 227F. Click here for certification details from PCGS.
