Description

Gem Proof 1856 Large Cent

1856 1C PR 66 Brown NGC. An exquisite proof example with glossy brown surfaces that are highlighted by iridescent hints of rose and tangerine. Sharply struck throughout with delicate details visible even in the star centers and the denticles. Writing in 1988, Breen estimated that more than 100 examples of this proof issue are extant, although we doubt whether many other pieces can rival this coin's technical quality. (NGC ID# 2274, PCGS# 1997)
