Stack's Bowers Auction May 2019 Baltimore U.S. Coins Auction May-2019 1865 Indian Cent. Plain 5. MS-66 RB (PCGS). CAC. Both sides of this gorgeous Gem are predominantly golden-orange with minimal toning in iridescent rose-brown. Sharply struck with a smooth satin texture that will please even the most discerning bidder. The Mint used two different date logotypes for the 1865 Indian cent, the Plain 5 offered here and the Fancy 5. Although no records were kept on the usage of these digit punches, the fact that all known Proofs of this date are of the Plain 5 variety suggests that this is the logotype used to produce the earliest circulation strikes. As an upper end Gem, the coin offered here is superior to that vast majority of examples in today's market. PCGS Population: 6; 0 finer in this category. PCGS# 92083. NGC ID: 227N.
