Description 1896 1C PR65 Brown NGC. Collector interest in the modern proof issues of the period declined during the latter half of the 1890s, as is evidenced by the proportionately lower production totals from this point forward. The 1896, struck to the limited extent of 1,862 pieces, is a slightly more elusive date in the context of proof Indian cents. The Gem example here offered shows deep violet and forest-green hues beneath a veil of rich burgundy toning. Bold design definition and a lack of significant surface flaws combine for great eye appeal. Census: 27 in 65 (1 in 65 S) Brown, 4 finer (9/14). Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $646.25. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
