Lot Description
1862 1C MS67 NGC. This intricately struck Copper-Nickel Civil War Cent has vibrant cartwheel shimmer and attractive seamless dusky apricot-gold color. However, its best attribute is its preservation. The Superb Gem is immaculate aside from one small tick above the 6 in the date. One has to marvel at how this piece was kept from circulation, contact, and carbon for more than 140 years. Census: 5 in 67, 0 finer (12/05).
