    Extraordinary Cameo Gem Proof 1862 Cent

    1862 1C PR65 Cameo PCGS. Eagle Eye Photo Seal. After the regular die trials were struck in copper-nickel, copper, and oroide some 550 proofs were produced of the 1862 with perhaps half of the original mintage still extant. This is a splendid example that shows bright pinkish-white coloration. The fields are unfathomably deep in their mirrored reflectivity and the devices show considerable mint frost which provides a noticeable cameo contrast on each side. Nearly perfect surfaces.
    From the "Newmismatist" Collection; the All-Time #1 PCGS Registry Set.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 229C, PCGS# 82259)

    Weight: 4.67 grams

    Metal: 88% Copper, 12% Nickel
