1913 Newfoundland Cent MS66 Red ICCS. Tied for Finest.

1913 Newfoundland Cent MS66 Red ICCS. Tied for Finest.


The 1913 Newfoundland cent was struck to the extent of 400,000 pieces. It serves as the top issue to represent the George V type (1913 to 1936), claiming the highest population in upper Mint State grades. With that said, it is a condition rarity at the Premium Gem level. According to ICCS’s most recent Population Report (2016), there are 11 MS66 submissions at that service. Probably more have been graded in the last three years, but they may represent duplications of past grading events or crossovers from other services.

Color and luster are the hallmarks of this coin. Golden-orange glows from the recesses, while the fields show lighter lavender-red hues. Accents of magenta and forest-green appear mostly on the reverse. Cartwheel luster swirls around each side, and the only notable speck occurs in the upper-left obverse field before the crown band. Eye appeal is exceptional, and examples of this quality are rarely offered.
