Jaime Hernandez:

This a one year Type and also the first regular issue Proof Indian Head Cent design. Original mintage was about 800 coins struck. However, only about half the mintage has survived throughout the years. Most coins that have survived are in PR64 condition. In Proof 65 condition they are considered very scarce with possibly 60 examples available. And in PR66 condition they are truly scarce with less than 2 dozen known. The ultimate condition for this issue is PR67 with one lone survivor meriting this grade and none being finer.
