    1840 N-2 Cent, PR65 Brown
    Small Over Large 18

    1840 1C Small Over Large 18 PR65 Brown PCGS. N-2, Low R.6 as a Proof. About two dozen 1840 proof large cents are known, all from the N-2 die pair that has a small block-style 18 punched over a large script-style 18. The angular stroke of the Script 8 is visible in the lower loop of the Block 8. Two oval areas of magenta toning appear on the olive and light brown surfaces of this Gem proof, one on Liberty's neck and jaw, the other from TY across the hair buns to stars 8 and 9. Delicate blue toning appears with faded reddish mint color. The fields are lightly reflective as usual on these proofs, with shallow mirrors. Iridescent overtones enhance the splendid eye appeal of this beauty. Our EAC grade PR60+.
