||1893 1C PR65 Red and Brown NGC. CAC. The 1893 boasts the lowest proof mintage in the Indian cent series since 1877, and is proportionately elusive in Gem and finer grades. This representative is nearly full Red, displaying deep cherry-red hues in the recesses and lighter bronze-gold over the remainder of each side. A bold strike increases the overall appeal. Census: 39 in 65 Red and Brown, 11 finer (9/14). Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
