1864 1c PCGS Proof 66 CAM (Copper Nickel) ex: D.L. Hansen

DLRC #: 1880060 // PCGS #: 82265

Fantastic gem with stark contrast between frosty golden-tan devices and reflective fields that flash with orangey-red and lavender tints. Very scarce and desirable issue from a low mintage of just 370 coins struck in proof format. The Hansen Collection contains another example of the same grade for the date.
