Very nice one! Ms65rb. Circulation strike as the reverse has the shallow N.

Another beautiful key date cent! I'm thinking MS64RB. This one is still on my want list, but not in a grade that high. Congrats!

*** SPOILER ALERT *** Do not read if you still want to guess the grade.

The top of the 1877 Indian cent census looks like this:

MS66+RD - None finer.
PCGS: 1
NGC: 0

MS66RD
PCGS: 8
NGC: 0

MS66RB - None finer in RB.
PCGS: 3

NGC: 7

MS66BN - None finer in BN.
PCGS: 8
NGC: 1

I didn't know any of this, I just liked the coin and I purchased it. I liked the creamy, even luster, the surfaces and the pleasing color.

After I bought it, I strolled over to PCGS Coinfacts and NGC Explorer to learn more about this coin and found that my coin is one of the three highest graded 1877 cents with the Red-Brown color designation. As bolded above, it is one of the three coins graded MS66RB - none higher in RB. There is however one coin graded MS66+RD by PCGS and eight coins graded MS66RD by PCGS. Those nine coins are finer than this coin. This information can be found in the links below.

https://www.PCGS.com/coinfacts/coin...7-1c-rb/2128
https://www.NGCcoin.com/coin-explor...ms-ucid-2284

The most surprising thing was that when I went to the PCGS page for the 1877 Indian cent in Red-Brown they had pictures of the three coins graded MS66RB at the top of the population. If the population census figures are correct, then it has to include my coin, right? But often, census figures are wrong and not everything is counted, stuff falls through the cracks, so no way that this coin is pictured in PCGS Coinfacts right? I start examining the pictures carefully, and I am shocked that the second picture in the coinfacts page for this coin, is actually this coin. See that coin on the PCGS/Coinfacts page below and compare with this coin. Although, they look completely different at first glance, they are actually the same coin if you examine the pictures carefully. Especially in the reverse in the area between the N in ONE and the N in CENT. The picture below can be found on this page:
https://www.PCGS.com/coinfacts/coin...7-1c-rb/2128

What do you think?




So now I know where it stands in the condition census for this coin. I would also add, having looked at the 3 coins graded MS66RB by PCGS, that this coin is the finest one of the 3 by a wide margin.

Wonderful, spectacular coin, which presumably would have cost around $30,000. Congratulations on the acquisition of this beauty!
