    Finest Known 1896 Gem Cameo Proof Cent

    1896 1C PR65 Red Cameo PCGS. Less discerning collectors should have little trouble acquiring a Brown or Red and Brown representative of this issue. Even lower grade Red survivors can be obtained with a little patience. At or above the PR65 Red level, however, the 1896 is undeniably rare. Flickers of golden-red color adorn the otherwise golden surfaces of this fully lustrous specimen. The crisp, shimmering features leave little doubt about this coin's status as a cameo proof. This is the finest Gem Cameo specimen thus far certified at either service (10/03).
    From the Palm Beach Collection. (#82377) (Registry values: P2)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 22AJ, PCGS# 82377)

    Weight: 3.11 grams
