    I was concerned about the coloration of this 1877 Indian cent (see photo) and tried to look up the registry #ID as listed on the holder at PCGS, but couldn't come up with anything. Any thoughts on the color and/or why I can't seem to get a read at PCGS for this coin (#2127.20/37320951)?

    Thanks! I entered the number several times, but couldn't get a proper response. Just tried again. It worked. Thank you for the help.

    The coloration still has me concerned. It may be the photograph of course, but it seems a bit off. PCGS likely would have caught any cleaning consequences, but still this is an unusual color.
