    Virtually Unsurpassable 1862 Indian Cent, PR66 PCGS

    1862 1C PR66 PCGS. We do not know exactly how many proof Indian Cents were produced in 1862, but both the 2002 Guide Book and Rick Snow (1992) agree that the smallest number is 550 coins. Representatives of this date are the most plentiful proof Copper-Nickel Indian Cents in today's market, but the vast majority are confined to grades below the Gem level. The present specimen, on the other hand, is smooth from rim to rim with no distracting carbon. Rich orange-red color glistens over shimmering fields and fully brought up devices. Truly a significant find for the U.S. Cent specialist. Population: 37 in 66, 1 finer (7/02).

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 229C, PCGS# 2259)

    Weight: 4.67 grams

    Metal: 88% Copper, 12% Nickel
