    Rare Newcomb-19 1848 Cent, PR64+ Brown
    Proof-Only Variety

    1848 1C PR64+ Brown PCGS. CAC. N-19, Low R.6. The Newcomb-19 die variety is a proof-only issue. Although in past auctions we have estimated the survivorship to the extent of perhaps 35 to 40 pieces or R.5, in the last auction appearance we rated it Low R.6. PCGS' CoinFacts website posits an even lower number of 25 pieces, again Low R.6 rather than R.5. The current PCGS data show 14 submissions in PR64 through PR66 (the highest graded), including Brown, Red and Brown, and Red pieces. This near-Gem proof Brown specimen clearly shows the faint die line between the base of Liberty and the upright of the 1 in the date, as well as repunching on the base of the 1. The base of the second 8 in the date is doubled. The surfaces display a sharp strike throughout against prevailing olive, violet, and mahogany-gold hues. MRB PR60. Population: 1 in 64+ Brown, 4 Brown pieces finer (8/11).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 226X, PCGS# 1973)

    Weight: 13.48 grams

    Metal: 100% Copper
