I recall a thread here recently that talked about copper needing to be red
for this high a grade. Am I remembering correctly?
A vest pocket dealer in my area has a 1902 NGCA-slabbed MS66 Indian cent
for sale. There's not a hint of red, but it is beautifully struck and
flawless. Looks just brown until you twist it in the daylight, when you
see beautiful iridescence in olive, blue and magenta. Subtle, but pretty.
I am absolutely ***ed to nice Indian Cents, and I already have a raw
1902 Indian in full blazing red, but am seriously considering this coin.
The dealer (whom I've dealt with before) wants $250 for this coin, and I'm
not sure I can get a break on the price. Should I even consider it? And
how often do you see MS66 Indians?
Unless someone here convinces me otherwise, I may just bite the bullet and
take it home anyway...............:-)
Thanks for any discussion,
In the beginning there was nothing, and God said, "Let there be light."
And there was still nothing, but you could see it.
