    1900 Gem Cameo Proof Cent

    1900 1C PR65 Red Cameo PCGS. While readily available in PR64 and higher grades, very few cameos have been certified by the two major services. PCGS has only certified this piece at the 65 Red level with two finer (7/06). This is a magnificent coin that would make an excellent type coin, if it is not bought by someone assembling a set of high grade cameo cents. The fields are exceptionally deep in their reflectivity, which gives a mirrored background to the frosted devices. The center of the obverse shows a light accent of pale olive-orange color while the rest of coin is deep cherry-red. An exceptionally attractive 1900 cameo cent.
