New August 10! Flying Eagle Type, Steely Reflectance, Bold Strike, Westend Avenue Collection. 1857 brought the transition from the long used large cent to a smaller cent with an eagle flying left across the obverse. Of course, economic were at play with the transition due to the lower amount of copper employed for the new cent. This Westend Avenue Collection release is a near-gem with uniform coloration and steely reflectance. Angled lighting enhanced the brilliant luster and vibrant cartwheels. A few micro-ticks hold this piece back from full gem status. CAC approval rewards the accurate grading and obvious originality. Housed in new large font NGC holder.

Gem $1950 Gem Original, Blazing Red Cartwheel Luster, Blemish Free, Accurately Graded, Sunset Point Collection. A stunning 1875 Indian cent with blazing red-orange cartwheel luster. Mint frost is spread throughout the obverse and reverse dies and equally across main devices and fields. Pricing this 1875 cent in an old white ANACS holder is challenging as collectors wish to have the assurance of PCGS or NGC. Frankly, I believe this Indian cent will be scooped up at the next major show by a crack out dealer. Purchased nearly two decades ago and quietly off the market in a bank box. From the Sunset Point Collection of fine numismatic properties. Price to sell.

Gem $1615 Brilliant Copper-Orange Luster, Gem Original, Ex. Eric P Newman Collection 2014 Sale, Port Matilda Collection. Following a spike in 1874 and 1875, Indian cent production declined again in 1876 to fewer than 8 million pieces due to reduced commerce demand. This production reduction culminated in the following year, in 1877, when fewer than 900,000 were coined. This gem example displays glowing coppery-orange luster amid faint hues of pale burgundy color. The strike is bold, and the preservation is excellent.

Gem $1750 Reflective Gem, Pristine Crisp Mirrors, Nearly Full Red. GFRC is not yet known for stocking gorgeous proof Indian cents. I get that. However, this new 1881 Proof 66RB is certainly a step in the right direction! Reflective luster explodes off the intense mirrored fields without a single visual distraction. Strike is deeply impressed and terribly pleasing. Hopefully, more proof Indian of this premium quality level will be coming to the price list shortly. In the meantime, this one is available for a new home. Housed in PCGS Gen 5.0 Dupont hologram holder with CAC approval. CAC population is 25 at the grade with only two finer.

This 1882 proof Indian certainly presents itself well via photography with its pure red coloration and cameo portrait. The assigned PR62 certified begs questioning as my first impression was that of a higher grade given the exceptional eye appeal. A 10x review reveals faint obverse field lines along with a long lint mark at the bottom of the date. This offering is as nice a PR62 as could be imagine and is worthy of inclusion in an advance collection. Housed in PCGS Gen 4.4 (2005-2011) holder.

$920
1922 No D, Strong Reverse, Dark Chocolate Brown Patina, Newtown Collection. The 1922 No D Lincoln is a major series die variety, popular with collectors, and commands a substantial premium. It is the only Lincoln circulation strike that lacks its intended mint mark. The suggested story as to the missing D mint mark relates to obverse die polishing. One can easily see that the first 2 in the date is much weaker than the second 2 digit. All obverse dies are are in shallow relief due to the polishing while the reverse motifs are big and bold. Grading is accomplished via the reverse. This new example features a dark chocolate-brown skin and is minimally abraded. Housed in NGC Gen 7 (1997-2000) holder.
