    1845 N-14 Cent, PR64 Brown
    Proof-Only Variety

    1845 1C PR64 Brown NGC. CAC. N-14, High R.6. Just over a dozen examples of this variety are known, perhaps 14 or 15 in all, and the Newman example is likely the fifth or sixth finest of those. This is only the third appearance of an 1845 proof large cent in any of our sales. This proof-only variety has an obverse die appearing nowhere else in the series, and shares its reverse die with several proof-only varieties struck over many years from 1844 to 1849. A few curved lines and tiny lumps on the jaw and throat are described in Bob Grellman's reference, as is a short vertical die line on the outer obverse rim over star 7. The line at the rim extends downward into the field just right of star 7, and continues as a faint die crack to the top of the head. This latter feature is unrecorded in the Grellman reference or the more recent Noyes book. This lovely piece has a shallow nick on Liberty's neck, with a hairline from the chin to the border above star 2. The surfaces are deep chocolate with splashes of lighter tan, showing faint bluish overtones. Our EAC grade PR60.
    From The Eric P. Newman Collection.(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 226V, PCGS# 1964)

    Truth Seeker: The Life of Eric P. Newman (softcover)
    A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.

    What I most appreciated was how thorough you were when we initially met, how you were conservative in your estimates, not trying to get me to consign by giving false expectations, and then for delivering above and beyond on your commitment to me of a wonderful marketing campaign and a first rate catalog and photos, all of which resulted in a final total price realized that was nicely higher than what you had told me to expect.
