    Description

    1831 N-11 Cent, PR64 Brown
    Ex: Stickney-Starr
    Extremely Rare in Proof

    1831 1C Medium Letters, N-11, R.8 as Proof, PR64 Brown PCGS. CAC. This piece is the finer of just two proofs known from the 1831 Newcomb-11 die pair. Although the strike is a trifle blunt at the upper obverse and lower reverse, this is a lovely and unmistakable proof with pristine surfaces. Lovely light brown surfaces exhibit delicate blue overtones, and traces of original orange mint color. According to Denis Loring's proof large cent census, there are only two known proofs of N-11. Among the 1831 large cents records 12 examples of N-3, two one-sided proof examples of N-6, one proof of N-9 and a one-sided proof of the same variety, three one-sided proofs of N-10, and the two aforementioned examples of N-11. The total count of 22 proof 1831 large cents has to suffice for type and date collections, as well as advanced variety specialists. Our EAC grade PR63.
