The 1872 cent has long been considered a key date in the series. A mint state coin with red brown surfaces is especially elusive and desirable. Pretty, silky surfaces with wonderful eye appeal. CAC approved for quality.
A better date that is scarce with the red designation. Lovely red-gold toning with nice luster. A real gem that is unappreciated with the Red designation. Only 2 pieces are graded finer by both services combined.
