||1887 1C MS65 Red and Brown NGC. Readily available in lower grades, the 1887 Indian cent becomes somewhat elusive at the Gem grade level, regardless of color designation. This piece displays substantial orange-gold luster shining through subtle auburn-brown overtones. The strike is sharply impressed, and the surfaces are free of any noticeable carbon spotting. Census: 58 in 65 Red and Brown, 6 finer (9/14). Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
