1862 Copper-Nickel Cent, MS67
Fully Struck With 'Four Diamonds'

1862 1C MS67 PCGS. The copper-nickel cents of 1859-1864 constitute an interesting and challenging subset of the entire Indian cent series. The 1859 is copper-nickel but technically a one-year subtype, due to the Laurel Wreath reverse. The Mint had a time striking these harder planchets in the new metallic composition beginning with the 1856 Flying Eagles, 12% nickel and 88% copper. For comparison, the near-contemporary Shield nickel and three cent nickel were each 25% nickel, 75% copper, while the old large cents were pure copper. This piece is one of the few fully struck pieces showing both full feather tips and a full "four diamonds" on the ribbon. It also boasts surfaces that are incredibly clean overall. Even though the 1862 is the most frequently seen copper-nickel cent, this piece is among the few finest survivors. The color is light reddish-tan, complementing generous luster and superb eye appeal. Population: 9 in 67, 0 finer (1/13).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 227H, PCGS# 2064)
