||1887 1C MS62 Red and Brown NGC. CAC. The 1887 Indian cent is not a rare date at the MS62 level, but this particular representative is unusually appealing for the grade. Luminous coppery-orange luster illuminates the recesses on each side, attractively highlighting the rich chocolate-brown toning. Relief elements are sharply struck. A few faint carbon specks are seen upon close examination. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
