    Exceptional MS66 Full Red 1888 Cent

    1888 1C MS66 Red PCGS. The mintage for the 1888 dropped significantly from the previous year. While 37.9 million pieces were still struck, full red (and high grade) examples are difficult to locate. An immensely attractive Indian cent, the surfaces are bright with even orange-red color over both sides with no signs of mellowing or browning anywhere. As Snow indicates, the color is a bit paler than seen in previous years, most likely because of the source of the planchets. The mint luster is thickly layered on both obverse and reverse, giving this coin an undeniable attractiveness. Population: 12 in 66 Red, 1 finer (11/09).
