    Superb 1882 Indian Cent, MS67 Red, Tied For Finest Known

    1882 1C MS67 Red PCGS. Simply extraordinary quality for a business strike Indian Cent, both sides are alive with vigorous orange-red luster that is fully original throughout. Close examination reveals the conspicuous absence of carbon spotting so common to these coins, and the strike is razor sharp overall, including the often soft feather tips. A couple of microscopic abrasions are noted on the obverse portrait, but these do not detract and are only visible with magnification. While generally available in lower Mint State grades even up to MS65, MS66s are very scarce, and currently, only two Superb examples are known to PCGS. NGC has not graded any above MS66 (6/05). Housed in a first generation PCGS holder.(#2144)(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2289, PCGS# 2144)

    Weight: 3.11 grams

    Metal: 95% Copper, 5% Tin & Zinc
