    Glossy Near-Gem 1857 Proof Large Cent

    1857 1C PR64 Brown NGC. Small Date. N-3, R.5. One of the least rare proof Large Cents, Breen speculates that the odd entry of February 7,1857 of $2.38 may mean 238 proof Large Cents. NGC has certified 71 pieces in this grade with 23 finer (3/02). This piece has warm, rosy red undertones with glossy brown patina that covers most of each side. Deeply mirrored, of course, each side shows moderately high knife rims which are often seen on this issue. A problem-free example of this final year of issue for Large Cents.
