    1862 Copper-Nickel Cent, PR66+ Cameo
    Deeply Mirrored, Light in Color

    1862 1C PR66+ Cameo PCGS. The 1862 is the usual choice for a copper-nickel type coin, and this piece shows why. The fields demonstrate uncommonly deep reflectivity and the devices are heavily frosted, the combination yielding strong contrast on each side. The surfaces are virtually free from contact marks, and there is just the slightest sprinkling of carbon present. Most of the original gray-tan color remains with just the slightest presence of reddish patina surrounding the devices. Population: 25 in 66 (3 in 66+) Cameo, 3 finer (6/13).(Registry values: P3)

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

    Weight: 4.67 grams

    Metal: 88% Copper, 12% Nickel
