||1893 1C PR63 Red and Brown NGC. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. With a mintage of only 2,195 pieces, the proof 1893 Indian cent is, not surprisingly, scarce in high grades; thus attractive lesser-grade examples are ideal for the date collector. This boldly struck representative displays fiery orange-red color around the margins, with rich burgundy-brown overtones in the centers. 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 @ $3.50; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
