Full striking detail and flashes of semi-reflectivity in the fields confirm this coin's status as a proof. Really a lovely Gem, the color is an even medium-tan shade and the surfaces are blemish free save for a few trivial, well-scattered carbon flecks. As one of the most consistently attractive issues in the copper-nickel, Oak Wreath with Shield Indian Cent series, the 1862 is a strong candidate for inclusion in a proof type set.
