    1887 Cent, PR66 Red
    Tied for Finest Known

    1887 1C PR66 Red NGC. The old saying about "hen's teeth" comes to mind, as in "rarer than." NGC and PCGS combined have graded a total of four PR66 Red coins of this issue, from the original proof mintage of 2,960 pieces. It is seldom indeed that Indian cents from the 1880s are found in such pristine condition with fully red surfaces. Nonetheless this is one such piece, with completely lustrous salmon-pink patina evenly covering each side. The strike is sharp and pleasing. Perusal under a loupe reveals two undistracting contact marks on the Indian's cheek and a single dark fleck in the lower left obverse field, all of which fail to diminish viewer enthusiasm for this elusive and beautiful specimen. Census: 2 in 66 Red, 0 finer (4/12).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 22A9, PCGS# 2350)
