1886 Indian Head Cent. Variety 1. PCGS graded MS-65 Red & Brown. With all the full red Indian Cents in the Chiro Collection, you would think a mere Red-Brown would stand out in a side-by-side comparison. However, this coin fits in perfectly well. This coin is actually full red on the obverse with a slight muting on the reverse. The strike is full and the eye appeal is exceptional. This coin will fit in well with your collection too.

The Type 1 issue is the design begun in 1864 (With L on Ribbon). Part of this design is a curious outline to all the letters. These "Extra Outlines" are seen on many of Longacre's designs. Sometime they do not show up on all letters, as in the case with this coin, which has outlines only on the UNI in UNITED. Either the die was not sunk deep enough during the hubbing process or the die was worn or abraded enough so that they disappeared. Pop 14; none finer at PCGS. (PCGS # 2155) .
Estimated Value $1,200 - 1,400.
Ex : The "Chiro" Collection. Eagle Eye Photo Seal accompanies this lot.

Realized $1,495
