||1889 1C PR64 Brown NGC. CAC. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. Medium saddle-brown toning is evenly distributed over the smooth, blemish-free surfaces. The design elements are boldly detailed, if a trifle weak on the first four headdress feathertips. Although not a rare proof issue, with a mintage of 3,336 coins, Snow writes it not an easy date to locate in Gem condition. 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.
