    1849 Cent, PR64 Brown
    N-30, Very Rare in Proof Format

    1849 1C PR64 Brown PCGS. N-30, R.6, R.7 as a Proof. Our EAC Grade PR60. Grellman die state a. Heavy die polish lines between UNITED and the dentils identify the rare N-30. The status of N-30 proofs remains debated by specialists, since the reverse die lacks the rim die scratch at 9:30 associated with 1844 to 1849 proofs. However, the fields on the present specimen are reflective, and there is no indication of the high point friction or abrasions customary of a business issue. Toned deep sea-green and mahogany-brown. Well struck aside from the center of star 4. PCGS has also certified a PR62 Red and Brown example from N-30 dies, and the NGC Census lists a PR63 Brown as N-30. The latter appeared in a January 24, 2010 Teletrade auction as lot 1031.
    Ex: Bowers and Merena (6/2001), lot 109; Stack's (7/2008), lot 1142.
    From The Adam Mervis Large Cent Collection.(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 226Y, PCGS# 1976)
