||1885 1C MS65+ Red and Brown NGC. CAC. Fiery copper-orange luster highlights rich cherry-red and deep auburn overtones on each side of this high-end Gem example. The combination of a sharp strike and a lack of any carbon spotting contribute to the superb eye appeal. This is an important offering, as NGC has encapsulated only 22 numerically finer coins within the Red and Brown color category (9/14). Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
