    Bright PR66 Cameo 1862 Indian Cent

    1862 1C PR66 Cameo PCGS. The 1862 is the most available copper-nickel cent in proof format. Some 550 pieces were originally struck, and probably half that number are extant today. However, only a tiny percentage of those surviving pieces show the cameo contrast that collectors find so appealing. The fields on this piece are deeply mirrored and glassy, with noticeable mint frost over the devices. An immaculately preserved coin. There is an abundant amount of lilac-silver patina on each side. Population: 17 in 66 Cameo, 3 finer (3/09).(Registry values: P3)

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

    Weight: 4.67 grams

    Metal: 88% Copper, 12% Nickel
