    Remarkable Cameo Gem Proof 1864 Copper-Nickel Cent

    1864 1C Copper Nickel PR66 Cameo PCGS. A nearly unimprovable and visually stunning proof striking of the final copper-nickel Indian Cent issue before the composition was changed to bronze later in the same year. Every single edge and detail of the devices and legends is boldly defined, and the thick, even frost emits a pale cream-tan glow. Flashes of rich tangerine and crimson are noted alongside the blazing lemon hues within the mirrored fields. Population: 6 in 66 Cameo with one additional specimen in 66 Deep Cameo, and none finer (6/04).
    Ex: Central States Signature Sale (Heritage, 5/03), lot 5370, which realized $4,830.

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