Lot Description
1956 1C PR68 Deep Cameo PCGS. The mintage of 1956 proof cents (669,384 pieces) was increased significantly over that of previous years. Consequently, proof cents in all grades are readily available. Cameos are more elusive, however, especially Deep/Ultra Cameos in the higher grades. PCGS and NGC have certified about 100 Gem and finer Deep/Ultra examples. The satiny motifs of this PR68 Deep Cameo appear to float over deep watery fields. Indeed, both sides yield an orange-gold-on-black appearance from several angles. An attentive strike sharpens the design elements, and close inspection reveals no mentionable flaws. In short, this is a breathtaking coin with superior technical quality and aesthetic appeal. Population: 6 in 68 Deep Cameo, 0 finer (8/08).
