Lot Description
1937 1C PR67 Red Cameo PCGS. Ex: Tom Mershon Collection. Although a handful of 1937 proof Lincolns, with a total mintage of 9,320 coins, are certified at PCGS in grades up to PR67 Red, in PR67 Red Cameo this piece is tied for finest certified with only one other coin--or else this piece has been submitted twice. Considerable contrast that appears to verge on Deep Cameo appears on each side of this stunning sunset-orange piece, and the effect is especially noticeable on the wheat ears and lettering of the reverse. A likely candidate for acquisition by Registry Set collectors of the popular Lincoln cent series.
