    1857 Large Cent, PR66 Brown
    Small Date, N-3

    1857 1C Large Cent, Small Date, N-3, Low R.5, PR66 Brown PCGS. A bold die line (as made) on Liberty's bust truncation confirms the proof-only variety. The dentils and stars are needle-sharp and LIBERTY is fully struck. The glossy chocolate-brown surfaces are beautifully preserved and devoid of contact. For pedigree purposes we note a trio of minute flecks near the edge of the neck. The 1857 is more available in proof format than earlier large cent dates, but most survivors are clustered in PR63 to PR65 grades. Our EAC grade PR60. Combined N-3 and N-5 Population: 4 in 66 Brown, 1 finer as 66 Red and Brown (4/14).
