    Description

    1879 1C PR 66 Red and Brown NGC. The obverse of this piece displays mottled red-brown luster with an overlying blanket of intense cobalt-blue patination. The reverse tends toward orange-red hues, although we note soft undertones of purple around ONE CENT. The fields on both sides are deeply reflective and the devices carry a thin veil of mint frost. This attractive piece would make a nice addition to a collection of deeply toned gems.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 229Y, PCGS# 2325)

    Weight: 3.11 grams

    Metal: 95% Copper, 5% Tin and Zinc
