    Incredibly Colorful Proof 1885 Indian Cent in Gem Red

    1885 1C PR65 Red PCGS. This is one of the most visually appealing proof 1885 Indian Cents that this cataloger has seen. Intense crimson-red color dominates the outward appearance, but it is not the only shade that the luster assumes as the coin rotates under the light. Beautiful steel-blue and golden-orange hues are also seen, particularly in and around the centers. A fully struck and conditionally scarce proof whose importance is further enhanced by the relative scarcity of similarly graded business strikes. Population: 17 in 65, 11 finer (10/02).
    From the Joseph P. Gorrell Collection.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 22A6, PCGS# 2344)

    Weight: 3.11 grams

    Metal: 95% Copper, 5% Tin and Zinc
