    Rare Gem Proof 1857 Large Cent

    1857 1C PR66 Brown NGC. N-3, Low R.5. A bold die line on Liberty's bust truncation confirms this rare proof-only variety. The denticles and stars are each needle-sharp, and LIBERTY appears to be fully struck. The lovely chocolate-brown surfaces are accented with turquoise-blue in the recesses, beautifully preserved, and seemingly free from even the faintest contact. Only 10 pieces have been certified Proof 66 Brown by both services, none are finer (10/05).(#2000) (Registry values: P1)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2275, PCGS# 2000)

    Weight: 13.48 grams

    Metal: 100% Copper
