Ron Guth: The 1887 Indian Head Cent is common in all grades, though it is difficult to find any examples above MS-65, especially in Brown or Red-Brown formats. The most frequently-seen grade is MS-64. Full Red examples are scarce, but not rare, and here the collector has an opportunity to find a full Red MS-66 or MS-67. However, be aware that PCGS has certified only 2 MS-67s in full Red (as of November 2011), and just over a dozen in MS-66 Red.
