||1894 1C PR65 Red and Brown NGC. In the context of the series, the proof 1894 Indian cent is not a great rarity, though its availability declines somewhat in Gem grades. This Red and Brown example displays substantial coppery-orange color beneath subtle auburn overtones, while the bold design elements complete the pleasing visual appeal. The surfaces are free of post-production marks; a couple of microscopic strike-throughs, as made, are noted on the cheek. Census: 42 in 65 (1 in 65 S) Red and Brown, 11 finer (9/14). Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
