    1855 N-11 Cent, PR66 Brown
    Needle-Sharp Strike

    1855 1C Slanted 55 PR66 Brown NGC. N-11, Low R.6. Our EAC Grade PR63. Among the diagnostics for Newcomb-11 is a tiny die lump on the right center of the A in STATES. The lump is clear on the present high grade specimen. Intricately struck and satiny. The obverse is mostly magenta with hints of apricot-gold. The central reverse is butter-gold though the peripheral field is faded rose-red. The reverse high points are medium brown. The only sign of contact is a minute tick east of star 3. Careful examination beneath a lens reveals only the infrequent pinpoint fleck.
    From The Adam Mervis Large Cent Collection.(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 2273, PCGS# 1994)

    Weight: 13.48 grams
