||1888 1C PR64 Brown NGC. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. Although not definably rare until the Premium Gem level, the proof 1888 Indian cent is elusive in grades finer than PR64, regardless of color designation. For the date collector, this Choice example offers substantial eye appeal for the grade with intermingled hues of cherry-red, forest-green, amber-brown, and soft lavender over each side, with the colors more prominent on the obverse. A sharp strike completes the appeal. 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.
