Superb Gem Proof (14: 4,5,5) BN. Dazzling purple tone on both sides over a brown patina. Great mirrors and flawless surfaces. The tone is difficult to capture on such deep mirrors, but in-hand it is intense. This is a very scarce proof date which has a reported mintage of 100, but the true number is likely more in line with the 1864 No L Proof Indian cent - 300. Regardless, this is one of the top examples in terms of absolute quality and intense beauty.
