    Vibrant Red Superb Gem 1878 Proof Cent

    1878 1C PR67 Red PCGS. The 1878 issue marks the beginning of the high-mintage proof era for Indian cents, with 2,350 specimens listed as the official mintage. According to Richard Snow, most examples show high production quality, and fully Red pieces are more available for the 1878 than for previous issues. This remarkable Superb Gem is one of the finest survivors imaginable. Its deep copper-orange surfaces host exquisitely detailed devices, and each side appears virtually flawless to the unaided eye. The Registry enthusiast should note that this is the only PR67 Red example of the issue certified by PCGS, with none finer in the color designation (6/08).
