    Finest Certified 1885 Proof Cent With Cameo Surfaces

    1885 1C PR66 Red Cameo PCGS. While many proof 1885 Cents display unsightly toning streaks from an improperly mixed alloy in the planchet, this high quality Gem is evenly colored in crimson-red luster. Slightly deeper magenta tinged undertones are also evident, along with a razor sharp strike that leaves no feather tip ill-defined. The elusiveness of high grade business strike 1885 Cents adds even more to the desirability of this smooth, virtually pristine proof. Population: 1 in 66 Cameo, none finer (10/05).(#82344) (Registry values: P2)

    Coin Index Numbers: (PCGS# 82344)

    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. Consign with Heritage when you're ready to sell.
