    Probable Finest Known 1841 N-1 Cent, PR65 Red

    1841 1C PR65 Red NGC. N-1, R.5. The 1841 N-1 cent is a proof-only variety with a current known population in the vicinity of 50 coins. As such, it is one of the more plentiful proof-only late date large cent varieties. The obverse die was used for this single variety, while the reverse die was later used for 1842 N-1 cents, both proofs and business strikes.
    Of all the known 1841 N-1 proofs, this example is believed the finest known. Both sides have bright orange proof surfaces with few flecks or spots. The most visible marker is a tiny spot below Liberty's chin that identifies this piece from a New Netherlands sale. EAC PR65.
    Ex: New Netherlands (6/1958), lot 1237; later, Stack's (3/2006), lot 3595; Stack's (10/06), lot 2564; Goldberg Coins (2/2007), lot 808.(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 226S, PCGS# 1954)
