Lot Description
1956 1C PR68 Deep Cameo PCGS. Rick Tomaska wrote of this date: "Ultra-heavy [cameo] examples do exist, but they are quite rare. The few examples that have surfaced usually exhibit lovely obverse contrast with little or no reverse contrast. This is not a major concern to cameo cent collectors, since the design of the wheat cents makes detecting cameo contrast on the reverse quite difficult anyway." This copper-orange specimen has bold contrast, particularly on the obverse, and stunning eye appeal. Population: 6 in 68 Deep Cameo, 0 finer (4/13). Ex: Dallas Signature (Heritage, 11/2006), lot 247; Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 2/2009), lot 593. From The MKJ Collection, Part II.
