||1907 1C PR62 Brown NGC. CAC. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. 1907 was a curious year for the Indian cent, as business strike production was the highest of the series (more than 108 million coins), but proof production was the lowest of all post-1877 proof cent issues (only 1,475 pieces). This example of the proof variant displays vivid coppery-orange and rose-red color amid deeper olive-brown and burgundy toning. The strike is sharp and the preservation is excellent. Census: 2 in 62 Brown, 49 finer (9/14). 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 @ $4.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
