    1863 PR65 Cameo Cent

    1863 1C PR65 Cameo NGC. It is thought that no more than 150 1863 proof cents have survived from the original 460 piece mintage. This estimate notwithstanding, approximately 210 or so coins have been certified by NGC and PCGS combined, many of which are undoubtedly resubmissions. Whatever the case, relatively few examples (less than 50) have been assigned the Cameo designation. The Gem Cameo presented here is sharply struck on the design features, save for softness in some of the feathertips. All four diamonds are sharp. Both sides display gold-tan patination. A few minute marks are noted in the upper left (facing) obverse field, and three or four tiny flecks occur on the reverse. Census: 7 in 65, 6 finer (2/06).(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 229D, PCGS# 82262)

    Weight: 4.67 grams

    Metal: 88% Copper, 12% Nickel

    The outcome of the auction far exceeded my best hopes and would not likely have been as successful with out your sound advice on where to present the coin and how best to set the reserve. Throughout the process your availability , support and knowledge were exceptional.
