    Surprisingly Scarce 1883 Indian Cent in PR65 Red

    1883 1C PR65 Red PCGS. Along with the 1886 and 1888, the 1883 (6,609 pieces produced) is one of the most conditionally challenging dates in this proof Cent series. This obviously important Gem displays intact mint luster in well blended pinkish-red and golden-orange shades. Needle sharp devices further enhance the eye appeal, as do surfaces that are free of all but one or two trivial flecks. Shimmering brightness is evident as the coin rotates under the light. Population: 15 in 65 Red, only 6 finer (1/03).
    From the Colburn Collection.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 22A4, PCGS# 2338)

    Weight: 3.11 grams

    Metal: 95% Copper, 5% Tin and Zinc
