    Essential Registry Set Coin, 1902 Indian Cent
    PR68 Red, Tied for Finest Certified of
    Any Proof Indian at PCGS

    1902 1C PR68 Red PCGS. As might be expected from the grade, this piece is one of the most unusual and spectacular Indian cents that this cataloger (GH) has ever seen. This obverse color is a chrome-green tint, with barely a tinge of yellow, while the reverse is a light reddish-tan, also with a slight yellow-green hue. Radiant cartwheel luster emanates from each side, and the strike is razor-sharp. Amazingly, for the entire population of proof Indian cents, PCGS has certified only two pieces as PR68 Red, including the present coin, and they are both 1902 proof Indians. Tied for finest graded of the entire proof series, this is an absolutely essential coin for the Registry Set collector. Certified in a green-label holder.
    From the Estate of Robert R. Rollins Collection, Part Three.(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 22AR, PCGS# 2395)
