1856 1C PR65 Red and Brown PCGS. N-5, Low R.5. Ex: Pittman. The 1856 N-5 large cent is a proof-only date with about 60 examples believed to exist today, although few are as fine as this Gem Red and Brown specimen.

Several darker provenance spots are visible on each side, especially below the 1 in the date, at the dentil tips between stars 3 and 4, and below the right side of the N in CENT. MRB PR63.
Ex: Henry Hines; Homer Downing-1952 ANA (New Netherlands, 8/1952), lot 2221; John Jay Pittman (David Akers, 10/1997), lot 278.
