Item Description:
The 1872 cent has long been considered a key date in the series. A mint state coin with red surfaces is especially elusive and desirable. Struck in similar quantities to the 1871, it is the second toughest date in the series, behind the 1877. The planchets that were used to produce the date were very inconsitent in quality and as a result, many of the coins are streaky due to the uneven alloy mixes or were struck very poorly through machine oil. This example is certainly th eexception due to the frosty, pink mirrors and absolutely outstanding strike and luster. A superb example for any registry set, it is tied with one other example as the finest graded by PCGS.
