Lot Description
1884 1C PR67 S Red NGC. Even though 3,942 proofs were struck of the 1884 cent, few have survived with full red and pristine, sparkling surfaces such as this Superb Gem that was assigned the coveted Star designation. The design elements are impressively brought up, including sharpness on all four diamonds, and their mildly frosted finish yields relatively strong contrast with the deeply mirrored fields. Both faces are bright orange-red with no mentionable defects. An outstanding example of this underappreciated date in the proof series. Census: 1 in 67 S Red, 0 finer (11/07). From The New York Eye Appeal Collection, Part Three.
