1873 Indian Head Cent. Closed 3. PCGS graded Proof 63 Red & Brown. An extremely sharp strike of this important Closed 3 variety. Coins of 1873 were made with Closed 3 in the date and Open 3 in the date. A quick glance at the 1873 Closed 3 date, made early in the year, resembled "1878," as the knobs on the 3 were close together. The Open 3 was created by filing away most of the bottom knob on the 3 of the date logotype and trimming the knob to a smaller size; dies punched with this modified date logotype are called Open 3. Only the Closed 3 is struck as a Proof (PCGS # 2307) .
Estimated Value $170 - 190.

 
Realized $322
