||1902 1C PR66 Red and Brown NGC. A change in proof die preparation in 1902 nearly eliminated all contrast between the fields and devices of proof cents produced during this year, making design sharpness all that much more important to the modern collector. This Premium Gem example is boldly struck with deeply reflective fields. Each side is enveloped in vivid olive-green, orange-gold, and rose-red toning, with the colors somewhat more prominent on the obverse. Census: 19 in 66 (1 in 66 S) Red and Brown, 4 finer (9/14). Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
