Description & Analysis

By a slim margin the 1892 cent had the highest mintage of proof cents for this decade. Ordinarily, this would have little effect on its rarity in gem condition, but a small hoard of red gems seems to have been intact at one time. Examples with full red and even cameo contrast are more available for this date than for those preceding and following it.

The example illustrated, however, displays the irregular, iridescent toning which is far more typical of proof Indian Head Cents.
