    Proof 1840 Small Over Large Date Cent, PR63

    1840 1C Small Over Large 18 PR63 Brown NGC. N-2, R.6 as a proof. The most recent census information for this variety includes about 15 different examples in various grades, along with several older auction listings that probably represent duplication of currently known examples. This is a sharply struck proof with medium brown surfaces and lighter tan and lilac accents. The fields are brightly reflective and the rims are wide and squared off, as one would expect of a proof striking. Few contact marks or other imperfections are noted. For the pedigree researcher, this example can easily be identified by a dark spot in the digit 4 and a small field mark below star 10. This is the only example that appears in the NGC Census as a N-2, although seven other 1840 cents have been graded as proofs by that service. EAC PR60.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 226R, PCGS# 1949)

    Weight: 13.48 grams

    Metal: 100% Copper
