    1864 Bronze No L Cent, PR66 Red
    Lovely Cameo Example

    1864 1C Bronze No L PR66 Red Cameo PCGS. This one-off issue of an estimated 300 proofs presents numerous challenges. As Richard Snow recounts in A Guide Book of Flying Eagle and Indian Head Cents, "This issue is found mostly brown or with very little red present. ... Full red examples are very difficult to find and are very expensive. Examples with cameo contrast are extremely rare and are usually priced with a significant premium."

    This remarkable coin combines excellent preservation, fully Red surfaces, and strong cameo contrast. Lightly frosted, pale copper-gold devices cede to deeper copper-orange mirrors that show occasional traces of ruby. Immensely appealing and of high importance to the proof Indian cent aficionado. Population: 2 in 66 Cameo, 1 finer (6/15).
