    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
