    Joyously Toned PR68 1903 Indian Cent

    1903 1C PR68 Red NGC. A coin guaranteed to elicit instant oohs and aahs from delighted viewers. The pristine surfaces are yellow-green with a tinge of gold at the centers, ceding to areas of flaming cherry-red, sunset-orange, and fuchsia near the rims. As a bonus, the strike is essentially full, with no visible weakness. All four diamonds on the ribbon are bold, the feather tips are as sharp as ever seen on this design, and all of the vertical and horizontal shield lines are evident. Contact marks are entirely lacking, as expected for the grade. Even under a high-powered loupe, there are no distractions other than one or two flecks of the most trivial and inconsequential sort. This coin is a definite must for collectors of joyously toned Indian cents, a coin that will never disappoint. From the proof mintage of 1,790 pieces, there are none others the equal of this specimen, and none graded finer at either service (1/07).(Registry values: N4719)
