    1821 N-1 Cent, PR63 Brown
    Only Two Dozen Proofs Known

    1821 1C PR63 Brown PCGS. N-1, R.6 as a Proof. Although a few 1821 N-2 large cents have been offered in the past, it seems that all true proof 1821 large cents are from the N-1 die pair. This lovely Select proof has sea-green and iridescent toning on both sides, with pinpoint definition and fully mirrored fields. The surfaces host scattered planchet flakes and lint marks, with a few later contact marks. Evidence of a multiple strike appears on the reverse, with several of the letters in the legend suggesting four individual press cycles. Current census estimates suggest that about two dozen proof 1821 large cents are known in all grades, and finer pieces are rarely encountered. Our EAC grade PR60+. Population: 3 in 63 Brown, 1 finer (6/12).
