    Lovely 1855 Slanted 55 Large Cent
    PR66 Red and Brown, N-10, R.5

    1855 1C Slanted 55 PR66 Red and Brown PCGS. N-10, R.5 as a proof. This variety is attributed by the point of the curl right of center of the 8 in the date, a strong point down to the left from the edge of the coronet, and a line from the dentils down to the left side of the O in OF.
    PCGS and NGC have seen a total of 12 Red and Brown specimens, the coin in this lot and two others being the finest known of this color designation. Only one fully red example has been certified (NGC PR64).
    Bright orange surfaces are imbued with traces of sky-blue and crimson, and are immaculately preserved. Additionally, an attentive strike results in crisp definition on the design elements. A lovely Premium Gem proof large cent. EAC PR64.(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 2273, PCGS# 1995)

    Weight: 13.48 grams
