    Superb Cameo Proof 1863 Copper-Nickel Cent

    1863 1C PR67 Cameo NGC. Only 460 proofs were struck of this issue with perhaps a third of that number estimated to have survived in all grades today. This is undoubtedly one of the finest examples known. This extraordinary coin is deeply mirrored on each side with heavily frosted devices that provide a stark cameo contrast. The bright, sparkling surfaces are virtually perfect with just the slightest trace of reddish patina on each side. Population: 2 in 67, 0 finer (4/03).

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

    Weight: 4.67 grams

    Metal: 88% Copper, 12% Nickel
