    Description

    1861 Cent, PR64
    Appreciably Toned

    1861 1C PR64 PCGS. No records were kept pertaining to the production of proof cents in 1861, but the estimated mintage is around 1,000 pieces. A mix of copper-orange, golden-brown, and lavender patina colors each side in an appreciable fashion. Planchet voids appear left of Liberty's mouth and below the ribbon end, as often found among 1861 specimens. This glossy, semireflective example shows minor contact marks on the cheek, but the fields are clean. Only 38 submissions are graded finer at PCGS, including five Cameo representatives (3/19).
    From The William Rehwald Proof Set Collection. (Registry values: N2998)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 229B, PCGS# 2256)

    Weight: 4.67 grams

    Metal: 88% Copper, 12% Nickel
