    1950 Cent, PR67+ Red Deep Cameo
    One of the Two Finest at PCGS

    1950 1C PR67+ Red Deep Cameo PCGS. After the failed matte proofs of 1909 to 1916, proof sets were not struck again until 1936. Production continued through 1942, when it again ceased until 1950. Proof set production resumed in 1950, with the issuance of 51,386 sets. The cent from this set is plentiful today in full Red condition, and it is often seen as a Cameo. However, Red Deep Cameo examples are elusive, and such coins are rare in Superb Gem condition. This Plus-graded Superb Gem Red Deep Cameo is tied with one other Plus-graded piece as the finest Red Deep Cameo at PCGS (12/19), a distinction that makes it singularly important for competitive Registry collectors. Bright copper-pick coloration warms the sharp, frosted devices, while the liquidlike fields melt into a jet-black glimmer. A loupe reveals a few trivial strike-throughs, as is often seen on proofs of this era, although the preservation of the surfaces is impeccable. Population: 10 in 67 (2 in 67+) red Deep Cameo, 0 finer (12/19).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 22LA, PCGS# 93359)

    Weight: 3.11 grams

    Metal: 95% Copper, 5% Tin & Zinc
