||1885 1C MS66 Red and Brown NGC. CAC. At the MS66 grade level, this "common" date becomes a notable condition rarity; NGC has certified only 20 Red and Brown examples at this level (1 in 66 S), with just two finer (9/14). This representative boasts satiny luster beneath beautifully blended hues of rose, coppery-orange, and olive toning, while the strike is sharp and the surfaces are virtually free of any detectable flaws. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
