    Description

    Elusive 1891 Indian Cent, MS66 Red

    1891 1C MS66 Red PCGS. While not especially difficult in MS64 or even MS65 grades, the 1891 shows a 90% drop in the number of coins certified between MS65 and MS66 grades, and that percentage is constant for both of the major services. In MS65 Red PCGS has certified 65 coins, but in MS66 condition only seven. NGC has 35 coins at MS65, but just three at MS66 (Red). This coin is certainly worthy of the highest accolades. The surfaces are smooth and display rich, even red color with no mentionable marks on either side. Sharply defined as well. Population: 7 in 66 Red, 0 finer (3/09).
    From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection.(Registry values: N2998)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 228K, PCGS# 2180)

    Weight: 3.11 grams
