Lot Description
1876 1C PR66 Red NGC. Always a popular issue with collectors as it was struck in America's centennial year, the fields on this piece are exceptionally deep on the obverse with a noticeable amount of contrast on that side. The reverse is somewhat less reflective with heavy die striations. Both obverse and reverse are well balanced with bright, unmellowed orange-red coloration. Virtually defect-free and carbon-free, this is a splendid, high grade example of this important and often overlooked date in the proof series of Indian Cents. Population: 3 in 66, 0 finer (1/05).
