An interesting proof Indian Head Cent.

With the discussion on proof blue Indian head cents, I thought I would share this piece. This coin was graded in the late 80's when photo certificates were in color. You can clearly see that the surfaces in the photos on the certificate are blue. Here are some photos I took. These show the color and reflectivity at the sacrifice of that bad glare. If I angle the lights to where there is no glare it looks more like the ANACS photos. This was graded well before the MS70 proof Indian head cent craze about 10 years ago. It looks like many of the IHC I have seen treated with MS70. Someone must've been ahead of their time. I've had the coin about 6 years and it hasn't changed appearance.

Need a Barber Half with ANACS photo certificate. If you have one for sale please PM me. Current Ebay auctions
