    1862 Cent, PR65 Deep Cameo
    Profound Contrast

    1862 1C PR65 Deep Cameo PCGS. The 1862 is one of the more collectible copper-nickel Indian Head cents in proof format primarily because of a hoard of 200 coins that came to light many years ago. It is occasionally available with Cameo contrast but Deep Cameo coins are rare. The devices are thickly frosted and the fields deeply mirrored, generating pronounced contrast. Delicate copper-gold surfaces with faint lavender accents appear virtually as-new. The only mentionable flaw is a small carbon spot below the T in UNITED. Population: 2 in 65 Deep Cameo, 2 finer (3/18).

    Thanks to Heritage I realized a handsome profit for my coin submissions and intend to send most of the remainder of my collection to Heritage Auction Galleries for future auctions.
