    Description

    1849 N-18 Cent, PR65 Red and Brown
    Proof-Only Variety
    From the Dan Holmes Collection

    1849 1C N-18, R.6, PR65 Red and Brown PCGS. CAC. Our EAC Grade PR63. Ex: Dan Holmes Collection. Delicate olive-brown and blue-steel toning fails to diminish neither the fully mirrored fields nor the original orange mint color splashed on both sides. This boldly detailed example possesses exceptional eye appeal.

    Variety: Newcomb-18. The usual early die state for this proof-only die marriage.

    Population Data (5/14): PCGS has certified four 1849 large cents as PR65 Red and Brown, and they are tied for the finest at that service.

    Heritage Commentary: Perhaps 15 or 16 examples of this proof-only variety are known today, and this piece ranks in the middle of the roster for its grade.
