    1883 Cent, PR65 Red
    Beautiful Rare Cameo

    1883 1C PR65 Cameo PCGS. The remarkably high mintage of proof cents in 1883 (6,609 coins) has long been attributed to the excessive sale of minor proof sets, brought about by the issuance of three different nickel varieties for the year. Still, full Red Cameo examples are remarkably rare. Fiery violet-orange, crimson-red, and bronze-gold hues blend across the deeply mirrored fields of this fully struck Gem, while close examination fails to reveal any noticeable surface flaws. Population: 3 in 65 Cameo, 1 finer (4/14).
    Ex: Central States Signature (Heritage, 5/2004), lot 5516.
    From The Brian Loncar Collection, Part II.(Registry values: P2)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 22A4, PCGS# 82338)

    Weight: 3.11 grams

    Metal: 95% Copper, 5% Tin and Zinc

    When it came to selling my coin collection I decided they were my first and only choice. They never disappoint. Excellent prices when selling through their auctions and you don’t even have to put any reserves on any coins. Simply the biggest company but more importantly the best.
