Lot Description
1953 1C PR69 Red PCGS. It is remarkable that out of 128,800 proof sets issued in 1953, only three cents have achieved the PR69 Red level at PCGS. This piece certainly deserves this lofty grade with essentially perfect surfaces and bright orange-red color. The fields have the muted reflectivity more reminiscent of 1950 proofs rather than the later highly polished proof strikings.
