    Description

    High Quality Proof 1899 Cent With Eye Appeal to Spare

    1899 1C PR65 Red PCGS. Both sides display a pinkish-red sheen that accents the crisp, nearly full devices. The surfaces appear smooth enough to warrant consideration at an even higher grade level, and the amount of carbon is also at an absolute minimum. This fin de siecle specimen striking is seemingly earmarked for inclusion in a Gem quality proof type set.
    From the Colburn Collection.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 22AM, PCGS# 2386)

    Weight: 3.11 grams

    Metal: 95% Copper, 5% Tin and Zinc
