    Description

    Outstanding, Low Mintage PR66 Cameo 1864 Copper-Nickel Cent

    1864 1C Copper Nickel PR66 Cameo PCGS. This low mintage (370 proofs) issue is challenging to locate with eye appeal and technical grade combined in the same coin. Only six coins have earned the PR66 Cameo designation from PCGS with none finer (10/03). This is an absolutely splendid proof striking that displays deeply mirrored, glassy fields and noticeably frosted devices. Light in color overall with just the slightest accent of golden-rose around the peripheries. One will need a strong magnifier to find the tiny flecks of carbon that limit this piece from an even higher grade.
    From the Palm Beach Collection.(#82265) (Registry values: P4, N7785)

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

    Weight: 4.67 grams

    Metal: 88% Copper, 12% Nickel

    Thanks to Heritage I realized a handsome profit for my coin submissions and intend to send most of the remainder of my collection to Heritage Auction Galleries for future auctions.
