    Famous 1955 Doubled Die Cent
    MS65 Red and Brown

    1955 1C Doubled Die Obverse MS65 Red and Brown PCGS. An aesthetically pleasing Gem, both sides display a smooth, softly frosted texture. The surfaces have survived the passage of time without acquiring any remotely mentionable carbon, and the surfaces are undisturbed aside from a thin line on the shoulder. As befits a representative of this prized 20th century error, the obverse doubling is readily evident to the naked eye, and, what's more, the lightly toned, olive tinted features retain plenty of vibrant golden-orange and lilac-red luster. A rare offering for the dedicated Cent collector. Population: 4 in 65 Red and Brown, none are certified by PCGS above the MS65 grade (11/07).
