    Lovely 1829 N-6 Cent, PR64 Red and Brown

    1829 1C PR64 Red and Brown PCGS. N-6, R.6. An experimental year for proof large cents, with examples known having a normal finish, or a bronzed finish.

It has the normal finish with gorgeous chestnut and steel-brown surfaces that are highlighted by considerable original mint red, mostly on the reverse. A few tiny marks are visible on Liberty's portrait, but the overall quality is excellent. The surfaces are moderately mirrored. The reverse is rotated about 20 degrees clockwise. EAC PR63. Population: 2 in 64 Red and Brown, 0 finer (6/08).
