    Nicely Preserved 1841 Proof Large Cent Rarity

    1841 1C PR 64 Red and Brown PCGS. Both sides show even, crimson-brown coloration, but accents of orange luster glow around the devices at select angles. The strike is razor sharp throughout and the surfaces are at the threshold of a full Gem grade. According to Walter Breen (1977), the Philadelphia Mint struck no more than a couple of dozen proof cents in 1841. (NGC ID# 226S, PCGS# 1953)
