    Scintillating Proof 1862 Indian Cent, A Superb Cameo Representative

    1862 1C PR67 Cameo PCGS. A second, and even finer Cameo representative of this desirable copper-nickel proof Cent, the glorious surfaces would stand for nothing less than a Superb Gem grade. There is not a single distracting blemish, and the shimmering fields form a splendid backdrop to the crisp, fully brought up devices. A few isolated swirls of orange tinged iridescence interrupt the otherwise honey-tan coloration. PCGS reports only two 1862 Indian Cents at the PR67 Cameo grade level, and, not surprisingly, there are none finer (9/02). One should be able to trace the pedigree of this important specimen by a small, out-of-the-way planchet flaw (as produced) at 12 o'clock on the obverse rim.
