    1888 Indian Cent, MS67 Red
    Tied for Finest in Red
    Rare Registry Set Opportunity

    1888 1C MS67 Red PCGS. The 1888 Indian is a remarkably rare date in high grade, much more so than many collectors fully realize. The certified population declines rapidly in grades above MS65, regardless of color designation, and Superb Gems are major rarities. This coins, plus one other MS67 Red piece, are the only 1888 cents graded at the MS67 numeric level at PCGS, with none finer. NGC lists five MS67 coins and one MS68 coin in the Brown color category, but none are this fine with Red and Brown or Red surfaces at that service (1/21). The present coin displays sharp definition and satiny copper-orange luster. A lone fleck beneath the D in UNITED serves as a pedigree marker for this piece. Population: 2 in 67 Red, 0 finer (1/21).(Registry values: N7079)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 228G, PCGS# 2168)
