    Gem Cameo Proof 1866 Indian Cent, PR65 Red PCGS

    1866 1C PR65 Cameo PCGS. The 1866 is a conditionally rare early proof in the bronze Indian Cent series. The surfaces are carefully preserved with only a few mentionable carbon flecks on each side. What's more, the devices are razor sharp in strike and set atop glistening reflectivity in the fields. It is, however, the presence of full mint luster that creates a pronounced cameo effect, and truly sets this coin apart from the typically encountered survivor of this issue. Since the Mint did not record the original mintage for the proof 1866 Cent, the best figure we have to go on is an estimate of 725 pieces based on the number of silver proof sets prepared. Population: 3 in 65, 2 finer (10/03).
    From the Richard Collection. (#82287) (Registry values: P5) (NGC ID# 229J, PCGS# 82287)
