    1873 Indian Head Cent, PR66 Red
    Closed 3, Tied for Finest Certified

    1873 1C Closed 3 PR66 Red PCGS. While the 1873 Closed 3 is far scarcer than the Open 3 among circulation strikes by a factor of 4 to 1, all proofs were made with the Closed 3 style. This Premium Gem proof is tied for finest known of the issue, with vibrant-orange, reflective fields and faintly frosted central motifs. A razor-sharp strike accompanies scattered blue highlights on the high points of the design. Glittering eye appeal illuminates essentially spot-free surfaces, which show a few deep-orange flecks but no carbon of consequence. Just 1,100 proofs were struck. Population: 3 in 66 Red, 0 finer (6/20).(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 229S, PCGS# 2308)

    Weight: 3.11 grams

    Metal: 95% Copper, 5% Tin and Zinc
