    1864 Copper-Nickel Cent Rarity in PR65

    1864 1C Copper-Nickel PR65 NGC. Although we have been fortunate to offer several high grade survivors of this final-year copper-nickel Cent in recent sales, the 1864 is a rare coin in proof format. The present survivor exhibits razor sharp striking definition throughout. The surfaces are originally colored in honey-tan hues over which sprays of olive-gold iridescence have gathered. Solidly graded as a Gem, there are neither outwardly noticeable carbon flecks nor distracting handling marks. Just 370 proof 1864 Cents were prepared on planchets of this alloy, and no more than 100 pieces are believed extant.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 229E, PCGS# 2265)

    Weight: 4.67 grams

    Metal: 88% Copper, 12% Nickel
