    Description

    Part of Proof Set

    1857 1C Braided Hair Large Cent PR66 Brown NGC. N-3, Low R.5. A bold die line on Liberty's bust truncation confirms this rare proof-only variety. The denticles and stars are each needle-sharp, and LIBERTY appears to be fully struck. The lovely chocolate-brown surfaces are accented with turquoise-blue in the recesses, beautifully preserved, and seemingly free from even the faintest contact. Only 12 pieces have been certified Proof 66 Brown by both services; none are finer (11/12).
    Ex: Dallas Signature (Heritage, 11/2005), lot 142.
    From The Douglas Collection.(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 2275, PCGS# 2000)

    Weight: 13.48 grams
