    1897 Cent, Top-Certified MS67+ Red
    Repunched Date, Snow-8, FS-402

    1897 1C Repunched Date, Snow-8, FS-402, MS67+ Red PCGS. CAC. Indian cent production topped 50 million coins in 1897, making this a plentiful issue. Still, full Red Gem-quality representatives are elusive, and Superb Gems are undeniably rare. This is one of just four MS67 Red examples certified by PCGS and NGC combined with none finer.

    Nearly flawless copper-orange surfaces glisten with vibrant mint luster, while swirling hues of cherry-red and peach color accent portions of each side. The design elements are well-defined and there are no signs of even minor carbon spotting. Obvious repunching inside the top of the lower loop of the 8 and on the 9 below the lower curve identifies this elusive variety, of which this is possibly the finest-known example. This coin represents an important opportunity not only for the Registry Set collector, but also the advanced Indian cent variety enthusiast. Population (all varieties): 3 in 67 Red (2 in 67+ Red), 0 finer (5/19).
    Ex: ANA Signature (Heritage, 8/2014), lot 5530.
