    Description

    Condition Rarity 1896 Cent, MS67 Red

    1896 1C MS67 Red PCGS. Indian Head cents of 1896, showing a circulation-strike mintage exceeding 39 million pieces, can be located without to much difficulty through the near-Gem level of preservation. As might be expected, fully Red Gems are much more challenging and higher-grade coins are quite rare.
    The lustrous copper-orange surfaces of this Superb Gem display occasional wisps of greenish-gray, and a solid strike delivers crisp definition to the design elements. Close inspection reveals no mentionable contact marks or spots. Population: 2 in 67 Red, 0 finer (6/09).(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 228R, PCGS# 2195)

    Weight: 3.11 grams

    Metal: 95% Copper, 5% Tin & Zinc
