    Gem Cameo 1862 Copper-Nickel Cent

    1862 1C PR65 Cameo PCGS. The 1862 is the "type" coin from the copper-nickel series. It is also better produced than the 1860 and 1861. The fields are deeply mirrored on this piece and the striking details are completely brought up--in contrast to the indifferent reflectivity and incomplete definition seen on 1860 and 1861 Cents. The coin is bright honey-gold in color with no obvious contact marks on either side, but a couple of very shallow lint marks are seen on the upper portion of the Indian's face. Population: 8 in 65, 9 finer (1/03).

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

    Weight: 4.67 grams

    Metal: 88% Copper, 12% Nickel
