Lot Description
1861 1C PR65 Cameo PCGS. Eagle Eye Photo Seal, card included. While many 1861 proof cents only show light mirrors in the fields, this piece displays unfathomable reflectivity, and as a result, the moderate frost on the devices gives the coin a significant field-to-device contrast. Light pinkish-red color overlays both sides of this otherwise honey-golden coin. The surfaces appear to be carbon-free, and a couple of trivial marks on the Indian's cheek and neck are not worthy of individual mention. Excellent definition occurs on the design features, including the four diamonds. Population: 4 in 65, 0 finer (1/06).
