Description

1916 Red and Brown Gem Matte Proof
Considerable Remaining Mint Red

1916 1C PR65 Red and Brown PCGS. The 1916 matte proof cents and nickels always attract attention as each is the key to the short-lived matte proof series. Of the 600 proofs struck, relatively few show red mint luster as proofs were all wrapped in tissue paper at the Mint and the sulfur in the paper caused them to lose their original color quickly. This example retains considerable mint red, especially around the devices on each side. Few contact marks or specks are seen, even when examined with a loupe.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 22KZ, PCGS# 3325)
