Indian Cents
1864 COPPER NICKEL 1C PF

Description & Analysis

Since most of the complete proof sets and silver sets (including minor coins) were sold early in the year, they included the copper-nickel edition of this denomination. Despite a relatively low mintage, it is the most available of the 1864 proof cents, and this issue was particularly well made. Examples having cameo and even ultra cameo contrast are known, and these are highly prized.
