    Spectacular Red Superb Gem Proof 1897 Cent

    1897 1C PR67 Red PCGS. This outstanding Superb Gem survivor is tied with just five others for the finest Red representative certified by PCGS (6/08). The impressively mirrored obverse shows even copper-orange coloration, while the reverse shows a subtle shift from peach at the top to lemon-gold in the middle and a touch of mint close to the lower rim. Magnificently preserved and undeniably attractive. One can even detect a hint of contrast on the reverse, with light frost on the decisively struck wreath, though the cameo effect of the reverse is too faint for the piece to qualify for such a designation.
    From the Estate of Robert R. Rollins Collection, Part Three.(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 22AK, PCGS# 2380)

    Weight: 3.11 grams
