    Description

    1864 1C Copper-Nickel PR65 PCGS. This important proof Cent is one of only 100 coins believed extant from an original delivery of 370 pieces. The surface preservation is truly remarkable, as there is nary a distracting hairline, carbon fleck, or contact mark to report. Warm lilac tinting is seen in the centers with dominant honey-tan color around. The razor sharp striking definition and appreciably reflective fields leave little doubt about this coin's status as a proof. We last offered a similarly graded proof 1864 copper-nickel Cent as lot 5317 in our June 2002 Long Beach Signature Sale. Bidding on that coin reached the level of $2,800.

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

    Weight: 4.67 grams

    Metal: 88% Copper, 12% Nickel
