    Rare Cameo Proof 1897 Indian Cent, PR66

    1897 1C PR66 Red and Brown Cameo NGC. While not a particularly scarce coin as a proof, cameo examples of this date are notably rare with this single example being the only Cameo or Ultra Cameo certified by NGC (1/05). PCGS, on the other hand, has graded seven Cameo coins and only one Deep Cameo. This is a splendid proof that has the orange-peel finish in the fields that is often seen on proofs from the 1880s and 1890s. Each side displays lovely iridescent orange, red, violet, and lemon-yellow coloration that is truly a wonder to behold. The devices are noticeably frosted and provide ample contrast on each side.(#82380) (Registry values: P1)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 22AK, PCGS# 82380)

    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.
