    1840 N-2 Cent, PR62 Brown
    Small Over Large 18

    1840 1C Small Over Large 18 PR62 Brown PCGS. N-2, High R.6 as a proof. Our EAC Grade PR50. Grellman Die State a. The usual die state for proofs. The blundered date makes Newcomb-2 the sole die variety for the date with a separate listing in the Guide Book. Although well-worn N-2 business strikes are readily collected, proofs are rare. PCGS has certified a total of nine specimens in all grades (11/13). N-2 is the only variety for 1840 proofs. The present intricately struck specimen is medium to deep brown with sea-green and lilac undertones. Contact marks are minimal but the color is slightly off, and tiny spots are scattered with a cluster near the date.
