    1909-S Indian Cent, Lustrous MS65 Red and Brown

    1909-S 1C MS65 Red and Brown PCGS. CAC. Yellow, gold, tan, and orange patina intermingles on each side of this nicely lustrous key-date Indian cent, which still shows considerable mint red. A loupe reveals a few scattered tiny flecks on the obverse, but the reverse shows a couple of larger dark areas on the right and lower wreath areas, while still remaining on the small side. The 1909-S Indian is the true cent key date of the year, surviving in much smaller numbers than the 1909-S VDB Lincoln. This piece with the CAC green approval is one of only 38 in Red and Brown there, and only two are finer (12/14).(Registry values: N1793)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2298, PCGS# 2239)

    Weight: 3.11 grams

    Metal: 95% Copper, 5% Tin & Zinc
