    1862 Copper-Nickel Cent, PR67 Cameo
    Exceptional Contrast, Deeply Reflective

    1862 1C PR67 Cameo PCGS. Ex: Palm Beach Collection. This coin exemplifies why the 1862 is considered the ultimate date for a copper-nickel cent type coin. In general, the often-seen strike, mirroring, and planchet issues are not a problem on 1862 cents. Certainly, that is the case with this coin. The fields are deeply mirrored and the devices nicely frosted, which gives the coin a pronounced cameo contrast on each side. The obverse displays an even reddish coloration, while the reverse tends more toward the original whitish-tan the coin had when new. This is a memorable proof coin and extremely rare in this condition, with none certified finer by PCGS and only a single higher-graded coin at NGC in MS67. PCGS population: 3 in 67 Cameo, 0 finer (7/14).
