    1842 Small Date N-1 Cent, PR64 Brown
    Sharp and Pleasing

    1842 1C PR64 Brown PCGS. CAC. N-1, R.7 as a proof. Small Date. The curl tip hovers directly over the upright of the 4, and a small die lump shows between the rim and the base of the 1, distinguishing this variety from the N-2, the other Small Date obverse. Walnut-brown surfaces with some darker mahogany toning prevail overall, although some reddish and blue iridescence appears as well under a strong light. A small oval patch of lighter brown patina under U(NITED) provides a pedigree marker. PCGS estimates that about 10 examples survive of this rare die pairing. The strike is needle-sharp throughout both sides, the eye appeal top-notch. PCGS reports only three proof examples of the N-1, all Brown. At CAC, this piece is one of two 1842 proofs in PR64 Brown, with a single PR65 Brown finer (11/15). Our EAC grade PR60.(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 272P, PCGS# 1955)

    Weight: 13.48 grams
