||1878 1C MS64 Red and Brown NGC. CAC. The 1878 Indian cent is most often seen at the Choice Mint State level, as finer pieces are scarcely encountered, regardless of color designation. This near-Gem example displays substantial coppery-orange luster beneath lightly dappled auburn overtones. The strike is crisp throughout the headdress feathers and the ribbon, and the surfaces are free of any major abrasions. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
