Description 1890 1C PR64 Red NGC. Proof cent mintages began a gradual decline in 1890, with only 2,740 pieces produced that year. Survivors are available in lower grades, but the issue becomes elusive with full Red color. This near-Gem example displays bold design elements and moderate mirroring in the fields. Orange-gold luster graces much of each side, and deeper rose-red overtones are seen in portions of the recesses. Census: 22 in 64 Red, 12 finer (9/14). Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $470.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
