    Description

    1861 Cent, PR65+
    Attractive Color

    1861 1C PR65+ PCGS. Although this Gem proof is high-end for the grade from a purely technical viewpoint, it is also more visually impressive than copper-nickel proofs generally are. The obverse displays sun-gold borders with lavender tints in the fields and light tan in the center. The reverse has similar hues but in a less concentric pattern. Razor-sharp design elements add to the eye appeal. Population: 31 in 65 (2 in 65+), 9 finer (including 5 PR65 Cameos) (10/17).(Registry values: N2998)

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

    Weight: 4.67 grams

    Metal: 88% Copper, 12% Nickel
