1829 N-6 Cent, PR64 Brown
1829 1C PR64 Brown NGC. N-6, R.6 as a Proof. The 1829 N-6 is
readily secured as a business strike, but proofs are very rare. The
present offering is just our sixth auction offering of a proof 1829
large cent since we began our auction archives in 1993. This is the
third appearance of this specimen, meaning that the six appearances
include just four different coins. Various authors and students of
the proof large cents have given different estimates over the
years, while we suggest that between 15 and 20 proof 1829 large
cents exist today. Several of those proofs are bronzed, having a
satin appearance, while others have brilliant, mirrored surfaces
like this specimen.
Mirrored Finish, Very Rare as a Proof
The present example is unbronzed and shows traces of the original orange-gold color, particularly on the reverse legends and wreath. The strike is sharp aside from stars 6 to 9 that are always weak. The dies are rotated counterclockwise about 45 degrees, as always on the proofs. The only relevant imperfections are a couple of wispy marks near the NT in CENT. The fields are nicely mirrored. This proof 1829 will be a centerpiece of even the most advanced holding of middle-date large cents. Our EAC grade PR60
