    Cameo 1859 Laurel Wreath Indian Cent, Graded PR66 by PCGS

    1859 1C PR66 Cameo PCGS. Splendid lemon-gold and rose-violet colors appear when the Cent is rotated under a light. A razor-sharp Gem that shows every detail within the headdress feathers, while the borders of the diamonds have sharp definition. Beautifully preserved, and infrequently encountered with cameo contrast. The contrast on the reverse is especially strong. This is the only Cameo example currently certified above PR64 by PCGS. Coveted as a one-year type, and this example surely ranks among the finest known.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2299, PCGS# 82247)

    Weight: 4.67 grams

    Metal: 88% Copper, 12% Nickel
