||1898 Indian Cent. Proof-67 RD (PCGS). CAC. OGH--First Generation.
This vivid specimen exhibits peripheral highlights of reddish-rose to dominant autumn-orange color. A fully original, expertly preserved Superb Gem that would do justice to the finest collection. The 1,795 Proof cents that the Mint struck in 1898 were intended for distribution as part of both silver Proof sets (735 coins) and minor coin Proof sets (the remaining 1,060 pieces). In actuality, many of the coins intended for sale as part of minor Proof sets were likely sold to non-numismatists visiting the Mint or were wholesaled to dealers at year's end. Even so, the rate of survival is such that the Proof 1898 cent is readily obtainable in most grades, although with the quality offered here the issue is rare from a condition standpoint.
