Stack's Bowers Auction May 2019 Baltimore U.S. Coins Auction May-2019 1872 Indian Cent. Snow-10a, FS-901. Shallow N. MS-65 RB (PCGS). Here is a second Gem Uncirculated example of this scarce and conditionally challenging issue. Both sides are boldly toned in warm golden-copper, with remnants of faded rose-orange luster more prevalent on the reverse. It is sharply defined throughout with a pleasingly smooth appearance. Far more elusive than their identically dated Bold N counterparts, the 1872 Shallow N Indian cents were struck from reverse dies prepared from a hub that the Mint had abandoned in 1870. Apparently a few Shallow N dies remained on hand through 1872, and the Mint used these to strike small numbers of circulation strikes dates 1870, 1871 and 1872. Snow-10a is the most frequently encountered die variety of the 1872 Shallow N, identifiable by a sizable die chip on Liberty's cheek and a smaller die chip on the lower upright of the letter T in CENT. PCGS# 2104. NGC ID: 227W. Click here for certification details from PCGS.
