    One of the Finest Known 1863 Proof Indian Cents, Cameo PR66

    1863 1C PR66 Cameo PCGS. Out of the 460 proofs struck in 1863, it is reliably estimated that today no more than 150 pieces have survived in all grades. This piece is undoubtedly one of the finest known. The surfaces overall are bright and very light in color, being very close to the original "white" appearance these copper-nickel coins had when new. The fields are deeply mirrored and the devices are heavily frosted which gives the coin a noticeable cameo appearance on each side. Population: 1 in 66, 2 finer (11/02).
    From the "Newmismatist" Collection; the All-Time #1 PCGS Registry Set.

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

    Weight: 4.67 grams

    Metal: 88% Copper, 12% Nickel
