Thoughts on this Proof IHC
Another thread, discussing color variations after ‘conservation’ (I’m being kind here) on an Indian Head Cent, got me thinking about one in my collection that has always baffled me.
I am not a copper specialist. I collect Lincoln Cents and a few Coppers here and there but it’s not my focus.
This coin I cherry picked from a Whitman folder at my old LCS for a goodbbusiness strike price. I thought it might be a proof. Showed it to Charmy at a show and she agreed but recommended submission to confirm.
I sent it to our host and it did indeed come in as PF- questionable color- Unc details.
Doesn’t look “off” to me! It’s not blue at least!
What am I missing here?
Seems I’ve seen much more questionable coins straight graded.
Any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated.
