    1903 Indian Cent
    Finest-Certified PR68 Red
    A Coin With Magnificent Color

    1903 1C PR68 Red PCGS. A coin of astounding technical quality and visual allure. The pristine surfaces are yellow-green with a tinge of gold at the centers, ceding to areas of flaming cherry-red, sunset-orange, and fuchsia near the rims. Throughout, the strike is essentially full, with no visible weakness.

    All four diamonds on the ribbon are bold, the feather tips are as sharp as ever seen on this design, and all of the vertical and horizontal shield lines are evident. Contact marks are entirely lacking, as expected for the grade. Even under a high-powered loupe, there are no distractions. This coin is a definite must for collectors of joyously toned Indian cents, a coin that will never disappoint. From the proof mintage of 1,790 pieces, there are no other 1903 Superb Gem Red proofs the equal of this specimen at PCGS, with just four total Red proofs for the entire series at the PR68 PCGS grade. Population: 1 in 68 Red, 0 finer (11/16).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 22AS, PCGS# 2398)

    Weight: 3.11 grams

    Metal: 95% Copper, 5% Tin and Zinc
