Description

Rare 1854 PR64 Brown Cent
N-12, R.6 as a Proof

1854 1C PR64 Brown PCGS. N-12, R.2, R.6 as a proof. A short horizontal line under the base of 1 directly under the upright identifies the Newcomb variety (the left end of the line is stronger than the right). Fine lines up to left from the dentils under 54 and star 13 confirm the earliest die state, which John Grellman (2001, p. 353) says is "rare."
A medley of crimson, golden-tan, and electric-blue resides on the obverse, while lavender and sky-blue dominate the reverse. The design features are boldly struck, save for softness in the star centers along the right border. Luminous surfaces are free of mentionable contact marks or spots. EAC PR63. Population: 3 in 64 Brown, 1 finer (12/08).(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 2272, PCGS# 1991)
