    1854 N-12 Cent, PR66 Red and Brown
    Highest Graded of 5 at NGC

    1854 1C PR66 Red and Brown NGC. N-12, R.6 as a Proof. Our EAC Grade PR64. Grellman Die State a. Grellman believes that the rare proofs "were struck from a pair of repolished dies following the production of a small quantity of business strikes." The parallel die lines beneath the 4 in the date are bold. The fields are nicely mirrored and exhibit orange-gold, rose-red, and jade-green toning. The strike is bold though star 13 is incompletely brought up. No marks are present. Both sides display a partial wire rim. N-12 is the only 1854 variety known in proof format. NGC has certified just five proof 1854 cents, with the present coin as the single finest (12/13). At PCGS, the single highest graded specimen is PR66 Brown.
