1898 1C PF
Description & Analysis
The U. S. Mint's proof coinage of 1898 is notable for its superb quality, and several finest-known type coins hail from that year.
The proof cents dated 1898 are likewise quite well made, with greater than usual cameo contrast. Despite having the lowest proof mintage since 1877, this date is more readily available in gem condition than most others of the decade.
