1883 Indian Cent, PR66 Red
1883 1C PR66 Red PCGS. Perhaps surprisingly for a proof
1880s Indian cent with a sizeable original delivery of 6,609
pieces, the 1883 is a condition rarity with which to be reckoned.
Most survivors display Red and Brown surfaces, and what few fully
lustrous examples are extant typically grade no finer than PR63.
Among the finest proof 1883 cents that we have offered, this
high-end Gem is fully brought up from an obviously powerful
impression. Shimmering reflectivity is noted, mostly on the
obverse, and the surfaces are equally free of grade-limiting
distractions. The luster is perhaps the single most important
feature, and it is both full and vibrant with alternating
cherry-red and orange-red colors. Population: 4 in 66 (1 in 66+)
Red, 1 finer (1/13).
