Lot 46
1909 Lincoln 1C Matte Proof 65 Red PCGS
After matte proof Lincoln cents were struck, they were wrapped in tissue paper and sent to those who ordered them from the Mint. The tissue paper had a high sulphur content, which caused the cents to deepen in tone from their original full red color. This piece obviously remained in the tissue paper for some time as there are crescents of attractive deeper red color enhancing each side. The surfaces are bright red-orange and deeper brick-red, evenly matched from side to side. There are no mentionable marks or spots further attesting to the careful handling this coin has received for over 100 years. Housed in an early green label holder. (PCGS 3305)

Sold for US$ 1,872 inc. premium
