    Outstanding 1856 Cent, PR66 Red and Brown, Finest NGC Certified

    1856 1C PR66 Red and Brown NGC. N-5, Low R.5. A proof-only Newcomb variety that displays the following diagnostics: an italic 56 in the date, a die line from the right serif of the upper crossbar in the T of LIBERTY to the lower left base of Y, three more die lines on the neck just below the earlobe, defects in the E of ONE at its right top and under the serif of the crossbar (possibly the remnants of another letter), and a lump on the right base of the N in UNITED.
    Original orange mint luster dominates both sides of this Premium Gem Red and Brown proof, joined by whispers of crimson and lilac in the fields and tan-blue patina on the devices. Broad, squared off borders give way to razor-sharp dentilation, and a powerful strike has imparted bold delineation to the design elements. Liberty's hair, the star centrils, and the leaf ribbing are crisp, as befits a proof. Close inspection reveals no mentionable contact marks or unsightly spotting on the well preserved surfaces. EAC PR63. Census: 1 in 66 Red and Brown, 0 finer (4/07).(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 2274, PCGS# 1998)

    Weight: 13.48 grams

    Metal: 100% Copper
