    Conditionally Rare Superb Gem 1900 Indian Cent

    1900 1C MS67 Red PCGS. The 1900 Indian cent is generally considered to be a very common date in the series, but this general impression does not really tell the whole story. More than sixty-six million Indian cents of this date were produced by the United States Mint in Philadelphia. Of that large number, however, only around 550 coins have been graded in Mint State, and with Red color, by PCGS and NGC combined, including any possible resubmissions. Out of those 500+ prizes, just eight coins have received the Superb Gem (MS67) grade, when combined with the all-important "Red" color designation.
    This desirable Superb Gem is alive with swirling mint frost. The surfaces exhibit a virtually blemish-free sheen in pale peach-gold and yellow-green hues. Boldly struck, and one of the most attractive 1900 Indian cents that this cataloger has ever seen. Population: 6 in 67 Red, 0 finer (11/05).
    From The Joshua and Ally Walsh Collection of United States Cents.(Registry values: N2998)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 228V, PCGS# 2207)
