    Spectacular 1885 PR68 Red and Brown Cent

    1885 1C PR68 Red and Brown PCGS. A spectacular, deeply mirrored proof. The surfaces are as technically perfect today as they were in 1885. The only difference between then and now is the presence of slight mellowing on the mostly copper-golden and magenta surfaces. Housed in an early PCGS holder with a green insert. Richard Snow (2009) writes that this high-mintage proof date has "not survived the decades very well." Population: 2 in 68 Red and Brown, none finer (8/09).(Registry values: N2998)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 22A6, PCGS# 2343)

    Weight: 3.11 grams

    Metal: 95% Copper, 5% Tin and Zinc
