    Description

    NGC 1879 PR 68 Red. A flawless superb proof cent. There are no surface distractions on either side (including carbon) and the obverse has a deep cherry-red color with a couple of speckles of blue through UNITED STATES, while the reverse is a bright orange-red. Excellent depth of mirrors and just a beautiful type coin. This is the only PR 68 Red certified by either service and it has been so recently encapsulated by NGC that it doesn't show on the January Report.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 229Y, PCGS# 2326)

    Weight: 3.11 grams

    Metal: 95% Copper, 5% Tin and Zinc
