    Remarkable Gem Proof 1864 Copper-Nickel Cent

    1864 1C Copper-Nickel PR65 PCGS. The design elements are remarkably crisp and nearly full on both sides of this visually enticing Gem proof, produced during the final year of the Civil War. Well preserved with slightly variegated toning and no mentionable surface distractions. Later in this year, the copper-nickel composition was changed and the design was altered slightly, with the addition of an "L" (for Longacre) near the lower end of Liberty's hair ribbon. Population: 44 in 65, 10 finer (4/08).
    From The Estate of Robert R. Rollins Collection, Part One.(Registry values: N2998)
