||1886 1C Type Two PR64+ Red and Brown NGC. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. The last feather of the Indian's headdress points to the space between C and A of AMERICA: the chief diagnostic for the Type Two Indian cent design that began in 1886, designed by Charles Barber. The fields are highly reflective on each side of this near-Gem proof specimen. The variegated toning array includes hues of steel-green, peach-red, and tan. No contact marks or hairlines restrict the grade of this attractive, high-end example. Census: 8 in 64 (1 in 64+) Red and Brown, 7 finer (9/14). Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $2.50; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
