    1847 N-42 Cent, PR64 Brown
    Proof-Only Variety

    1847 1C PR64 Brown PCGS. CAC. N-42, R.6+. Our EAC Grade PR63. This is an attractive near-Gem proof that offers diffuse reflectivity on medium-brown fields touched in heather, violet, and blue. A few features are slightly soft, such as the hair over Liberty's ear and a couple of inner berries, but the proof intent is clear. Housed in a first-generation holder.

    Variety: N-42, R.6+. A proof-only variety. The N-42 is recognized easily by the die scratch along the left reverse rim, above the TED in UNITED.

    Population Data (8/15): PCGS has certified eight proof 1847 cents in all grades. The population includes one each in PR63 Red and Brown, PR64 Brown, PR65 Brown, PR65 Red and Brown, and PR65+ Red and Brown, and three in PR64 Red and Brown,

    Heritage Commentary: The N-42 is the only die variety of the year known in proof format; while Newcomb described coins from other die pairs as proofs, today's scholarship recognizes the N-42 only.

    Provenance: ANA Signature (Heritage, 8/2010), lot 3032.(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 272R, PCGS# 1970)

    Weight: 13.48 grams
