1893 1C MS67 Red PCGS....
Finest Certified 1893 Indian Cent, MS67 Red1893 1C MS67 Red PCGS. Ex: Joshua and Ally Walsh. Rick Snow describes a particular characteristic of 1893 Indian cents in A Guide Book of Flying Eagle and Indian Head Cents, part of Whitman Publishing's "Official Red Book" series. The phenomenon is called "liquid-strike through." He wrote: "Strike-through depressions caused by machine oil or water will leave differing types of depressions, depending on the location of the the design elements. A liquid strike-through on the field leaves a small, bright, circular area. If it is on the portrait then the liquid can migrate to the extremities of the design, like the bust point or feather tips. This will show up as weakness with bright luster, but will not be weakly struck, per se."
This Superb Gem illustrates the liquid strike-through on the first three feathers, with the design missing but with shiny bright orange luster. The balance of the obverse and reverse design features are bold, the result of a precision strike. Both sides have frosty luster with subdued orange color. The surfaces are entirely free of carbon specks or other blemishes. Population: 1 in 67 Red, 0 finer (3/09).
