    1857 N-5 Cent, PR65 Brown
    Ex: Herman Halpern

    1857 1C PR65 Brown PCGS. N-5, High R.5. Our EAC Grade PR60. The 1857 N-3 and N-5 large cents are both proof-only varieties with about 70 of the former and 40 of the latter known today. This example appeared in a Bowers and Merena auction in 2006, where they optimistically claimed that it is tied for condition census 2. It is actually tied for eighth finest in Denis Loring's condition census of the proof large cents.

    This medium brown and cherry Gem has considerable underlying faded mint red, especially on the obverse. A small planchet flake below the ear is mentioned for pedigree purposes. Deep blue patina is evident on each side.
    Ex: Stack's (1982); Herman Halpern (Stack's, 3/1988), lot 774; 2002 ANA (Superior, 8/2002), lot 303; Superior (5/2005), lot 2005; Superior (9/2006), lot 739; Bowers and Merena (11/2006), lot 334; Orlando ANA Signature (Heritage, 1/2012), lot 3043.
