    1908-S Cent, MS66 Red
    Just One Coin Graded Higher

    1908-S 1C MS66 Red PCGS. CAC. Branch mints refrained from the production of cents until 1908, when the San Francisco Mint struck 1.1 million Indian Head representatives. Aside from being a popular semikey, the 1908-S is a legitimate condition rarity in MS66 Red. Slight softness occurs on the feathertips and shield of this piece (as always), but the eye appeal more than compensates. Each side emits frosty luster over copper-gold surfaces. A single mark under (S)T(ATES) acts as a pedigree identifier. Population: 62 in 66 (5 in 66+) Red, 1 finer. CAC: 14 in 66, 0 finer (6/18).(Registry values: N2998)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2296, PCGS# 2234)

    Weight: 3.11 grams

    Metal: 95% Copper, 5% Tin & Zinc
