    1912-D Cent, MS66+ Red
    Top-Grade Registry Coin

    1912-D 1C MS66+ Red PCGS. CAC. A condition rarity with the Plus designation in this grade, one of just 13 Premium Gem Red examples endorsed by CAC (7/21). The 1912-D is occasionally available in MS64 and MS65 Red, but seldom finer. We have previously handled a Plus-graded MS66 Red piece on only three occasions. The most recent was in our June 2021 Dallas Signature, where a PCGS coin realized $14,400. However, the present coin is the first piece in this grade that we have handled with both a Plus designation and a CAC green label, ranking it as arguably the finest technical quality we have seen. Eye appeal equals its technical merits, with satiny copper-red luster and bold devices. There are no distracting abrasions and only the faintest traces of a few minor flecks. Population: 76 in 66 (8 in 66+) Red, 0 finer. CAC: 13 in 66, 0 finer (7/21).(Registry values: N2998)
