Description

    1843 N-12 Cent, PR64 Brown
    Petite Head, Small Letters
    One of Two Proofs Known
    Ex: Naftzger, Holmes

    1843 1C Petite Head, Small Letters PR64 Brown NGC. N-12, R.8 as a Proof. Our EAC Grade PR61. Grellman Die State a. The peripheral die lines above ERI and NI are bold. Probably, the few proofs were coined first, and business strikes followed. N-12 is a great rarity in proof format, with only one other known. An intricately struck near-Gem with pleasing field reflectivity and minimal contact. Mint red clings to design elements though the open field and portrait are gunmetal-gray. Minor spots beneath the flag of the 1, the right pendant of the T in CENT, and below the hairbun are all that limits the grade.
    Ex: C. David Pierce (Hollinbeck Stamp & Coin Co., 11/1944), lot 121; R.E. Naftzger, Jr.; Robinson S. Brown, Jr. (Superior, 9/1986), lot 967; Martin Paul; Ken Goldman; Denis Loring (4/1987); R.
