    Scarce Proof 1864 Copper-Nickel Indian Cent, PR65 Cameo PCGS

    1864 1C Copper-Nickel PR65 Cameo PCGS. Delicate lilac tinting overlays mostly medium tan surfaces. The devices are not only needle sharp in striking detail, but they are well frosted with an appearance that contrasts nicely with the glassy fields. Every bit the Gem, both sides are silent on the subject of mentionable blemishes. Only 100 proof 1864 copper-nickel Cents are believed extant from an approximate original mintage of 370 pieces. Population: 5 in 65 Cameo, there are just two finer with this finish (10/02).
