    Very Rare Cameo Gem 1861 Indian Cent

    1861 1C PR65 Cameo PCGS. While many 1861 proof cents only show light mirrors in the fields, this piece displays unfathomable reflectivity, and as a result, the moderate frost on the devices gives the coin a significant field-to-device contrast. Light pinkish-red color overlays both sides of this otherwise honey-golden coin. The surfaces appear to be carbon-free, but each side shows light granularity (as struck). Population: 2 in 65, 0 finer (3/04). (#82256)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 229B, PCGS# 82256)

    Weight: 4.67 grams

    Metal: 88% Copper, 12% Nickel
