    1832 N-1 Cent, PR64 Brown
    Extremely Rare Proof Date

    1832 1C PR64 Brown NGC. N-1, R.7 as a Proof. Our EAC Grade PR60. The mid-to-late die state with a crack connecting UNITED to the final A in AMERICA. The obverse die is unique to N-1, and can be identified by specific recutting on LIBER. N-1 is a plentiful business variety, but 1832 proofs are much rarer than their 1831 predecessors. PCGS has certified one each as 64 Brown and 64 Red. NGC has only certified the present cent as proof. The 1977 Breen proof encyclopedia delineates just two examples, with the present cent listed first.

    This specimen has a fully struck portrait and wreath, though all stars but the last are softly brought up. The fields are reflective and unperturbed by contact. Plum-mauve shades dominate though sea-green and caramel-gold also emerge. Identifiers are limited to the toning pattern, which includes a cigar-shaped lavender area between stars 7 and 8.

    A proof 1832 cent can only be owned by three or so individuals. A collection including such a rarity would immediately be elevated to importance. Once purchased at auction, it might be off the market for many years. Opportunity is fleeting.
