    Gem High Grade 1886 Type One Cent, Proof 66 Red PCGS

    1886 1C Type One PR66 Red PCGS. This coin is devoid of the multicolored toning that many proof 1886 Type One Cents display from storage in Wayte Raymond envelopes. It is also devoid of the unsightly planchet streaks that many extant examples exhibit, the surfaces, on the other hand, displaying a smooth, virtually blemish-free sheen in dominant olive-golden shades. Whispers of magenta color are noted on selected areas of the reverse. A fully struck representative of this, the more common of the two varieties of the proof 1886 Indian Cent. NGC and PCGS combined report only 12 coins in PR66 Red and none finer (10/03), a fact that confirms the conditionally rare status of this important specimen.
    From the Palm Beach Collection. (#2347) (Registry values: P1, N71880)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 272Z, PCGS# 2347)

    Weight: 3.11 grams
