Lot Description
1876 1C PR65 Red PCGS. An amazing Red Gem struck during America's Centennial celebrations, an event that coincided and arguably presaged the elevated proof mintages seen in later proof Indian cent issues. Strong lemon-gold color dominates the obverse, while the upper fringes of that side and most of the reverse show a deeper peach hue. The surfaces never approach Red and Brown territory. Population: 20 in 65 Red, 8 finer (1/10).
