Description

Near-Gem 1856 Proof Cent

1856 1C PR64 Red and Brown NGC. Only one variety is known for proof 1856 Large Cents, from the Newcomb-5 dies. This die pairing shows a slanting 5 and three minute die file marks down from the earlobe as the most easily recognized diagnostics. The fields are deeply mirrored on each side and the rims are wide and squared off. Fully struck in all areas, of course, the surfaces have a deep blue patina with occasional accents of cherry-red around the devices. A small spot in the field between stars 4 and 5 is the most useful pedigree identifier on this lovely, high grade proof. Population: 2 in 64 Red and Brown, 3 finer (7/02). (NGC ID# 2274, PCGS# 1998)
