Superb Cameo Proof 1869 Cent1869 Indian Cent. Snow-PR2. Repunched Date. Proof-66 RD Cameo (PCGS).Lovely deep rose surfaces are very close to pristine. A Razor sharp strike and strong field to device contrast provide outstanding visual appeal for this exquisite Gem. As with all early bronze Proof Indian cents (1864 through the mid 1870s), the 1869 is a significant condition rarity in the finest grades, as here. Noteworthy for both its cameo finish and expert level of surface preservation, this is truly one of the finest survivors from an estimated mintage of 600 Proofs.The two known die marriages of the Proof 1869 cent share the same obverse die, which reveals minor repunching to the final digit 9 in the date when examined with the aid of a loupe. Snow-PR2, offered here, was struck from a reverse with a faint die polish line within the letter N in ONE; this is the same die that the Mint used to strike all known Proof 1868 cents.Provenance: From the ESM Collection.PCGS Population: 6; 0 finer in this category.PCGS# 82296.
