Description 1879 1C MS65 Red and Brown NGC. CAC. The 1879 is the most easily obtainable Indian cent issue from the 1870s, but even this date becomes scarce in grades finer than MS65, regardless of color designation. This piece shows luminous coppery-orange luster with faint auburn overtones on each side. Slight die fatigue is noted in the obverse recesses, though the strike is nonetheless well-executed. NGC has certified 22 numerically finer Red and Brown examples (9/14). Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $470.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
