Description 1891 1C PR64 Red and Brown NGC. CAC. Proof cent production dipped yet again in 1891, achieving a mintage of only 2,350 coins. Poor manufacturing quality further inhibited the survival of high-grade examples. This near-Gem representative is unusually sharp for the issue, with ample reflectivity in the fields. Rich cherry-red and bronze-gold hues highlight the recesses beneath a thin veil of pale auburn toning. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $558.13. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
