    Contrasted 1864 Copper-Nickel Cent, PR65 Cameo
    Lowest Series Mintage at 370 Proofs

    1864 1C Copper Nickel PR65 Cameo PCGS. CAC. Final year of production for copper-nickel Indian cents, which were soon replaced by a bronze composition. From a mintage of 370 pieces, lowest in the copper-nickel series, this Gem proof shows flashy, deep mirrors and razor-sharp striking definition. Quality is usually below-average when compared to the 1862, but not on this coin. Impressive cameo contrast is noticeable on both sides. Population: 22 in 65 Cameo, 6 finer (2/10).(Registry values: N2998)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 229E, PCGS# 82265)

    Weight: 4.67 grams

    Metal: 88% Copper, 12% Nickel
