    Superb Cameo Proof 1904 Indian Cent

    1904 1C PR66 Cameo PCGS. As an issue, there is nothing extraordinary about the 1904 proof Indian Cent. Its original mintage of 1,817 pieces is consistent with the other 20th century issues in this series, and average quality representatives are readily available. However, not only are Gem or better, full red examples surprisingly difficult, but the Mint took no particular care in striking proofs with any kind of contrast. The sparkling proof offered here is truly an anomaly for the issue. Both sides exhibit bright orange-red color and contrast that can only be described as totally unexpected for a 1904. Population: 1 in 66 Cameo, 0 finer (4/03).

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 22AT, PCGS# 82401)

    Weight: 3.11 grams
