    Rare Superb Gem Proof 1905 Indian Cent

    1905 1C PR67 Red and Brown NGC. Very few coins of any type can boast the intensity of the fiery orange and red coloration that adorns the surfaces of this astonishing Superb Gem proof . The design elements are reproduced with razor-sharp detail on both sides. The fields are watery and deeply reflective, despite a small degree of yellow-green milkiness that is most noteworthy on the upper left section of the obverse. This issue had an original mintage of 2,152 pieces, but very few of those have survived in such lofty condition. In fact, a mere 12 coins have been graded at PR67 by NGC and PCGS combined: two Browns, five Red and Browns, and five in PR67 Red, as of (11/07).
