Just got this. 1887 One Cent...
Its actually a nice deep brown in color...
My oldest Canadian coins to this point was 1960's that I found when I was a kid... So this was kind of a nice find.

The Victoria series always fascinates. This is a lower grade example but it seems to be problem free. And I'm a big fan of original brown EF coins in this large cent series. Sometimes there's too much focus on red.

I agree with the "too much focus on red" comment. I try to collect, as keepers, not researchers, XF+ and AU coins. I really don't like red and I have never bought a cert'd coin, unless it was in a larger lot of raw coins. The 1887's were always struck nicely and some nice R/P'd 7's. Congrats on finding a keper!

Handsome example, looks to be VG or so.

It was only $7.50 US, so it seemed like a good buy...
