    Rare 1841 Large Cent, PR65 Red and Brown NGC

    1841 1C PR65 Red and Brown NGC. This coin was previously offered as lot 5922 in our July 2002 New York Signature Sale, where it was described as: "Six examples of this rare, early proof issue surfaced in the 1903 Eavenson Sale (Chapman, 4/1903) as part of a Mint official's collection. While it is unknown whether or not the present piece owes its existence to this collection, we are positive that it is among the finest examples available to today's collector. The surfaces exhibit mottled crimson-brown patina and considerable remaining luster. The central features are boldly defined and there are no distracting features. A small contact mark in the obverse field to the right of the date is, however, important for pedigree purposes." The coin realized $4,945 in that sale. Population: 1 in 65 Red and Brown, only 1 finer (11/02). (NGC ID# 226S, PCGS# 1953)

    Weight: 13.48 grams

    Metal: 100% Copper

    The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
