1885 5c NGC/CAC Proof 66 * Popular Key Date *

DLRC #: 361684 // PCGS #: 3883

Beautiful gem with light pastel blue and gold toning. Very desirable proof issue, as business strikes are extremely rare in mint state. Many collectors will substitute a proof in their set. CAC approved for quality and eye appeal. CAC is a third party grading service that grades the grading services (PCGS & NGC) and only approves the best coins in holders. CAC coins have been bringing significant premiums at auctions as more and more collectors are demanding the sticker before they buy.
