Lot Description
1862 1C PR67 Cameo PCGS. An unsurpassable--and unsurpassed, at PCGS--Cameo representative of this desirable copper-nickel proof cent. It is inconceivable that this coin would garner anything less than a Superb Gem grade. There is not a single distracting blemish, and the shimmering fields form a splendid backdrop to the crisp, fully brought-up devices. Just a hint of orange-tinged iridescence interrupts the otherwise honey-tan coloration. PCGS reports only three 1862 Indian cents at the PR67 Cameo grade level, and, unsurprisingly, there are none finer at PCGS (6/08). One should be able to trace the pedigree of this important specimen by a tiny, out-of-the-way planchet flaw (as produced) at 7 o'clock on the obverse rim. From the Estate of Robert R. Rollins Collection, Part Three.
