1872 1C MS66 Red and Brown PCGS
One of the finest seen of this key date issue, and retaining considerable mint color that has lightly faded toward golden-tan. The strike is quite sharp and the surfaces are free of dark spots or carbon issues. On the reverse, a mint-made retained edge cud has formed on the left side of the die, but this did not affect the depth of the strike. One of five so graded by PCGS at this uppermost level seen, and just one more is recorded at this grade level in the Red category. Prized as one of the key dates to the series and a rare coin this well preserved. (PCGS 2104)
