    Glittering Gem Full Red Cameo 1874 Indian Cent

    1874 1C PR66 Red Cameo PCGS. The proof 1874 was produced to the extent of at least 700 pieces - a respectable, if not overly generous total for the era. While survivors are generally available in lower grades, fully lustrous Gems are few and far between in today's market. The PCGS population of Cameo examples shows just two coins in PR65 Red and two PR66 Red specimens (10/03). The eye appeal of the present example is virtually unimprovable. Both sides are fully lustrous with full golden luster and deeply set reddish tinged undertones on the obverse. Every device is fully brought up with a frosty textured finish, while the fields, which are equally free of distracting hairlines, display deep mirrored reflectivity. A few small, scattered carbon flecks are noted, but hardly detract.
