    Small Date, N-5

    1857 1C Small Date, N-5, R.5, PR65 Red and Brown PCGS. CAC. The obverse of this Gem proof exhibits considerable mellow orange mint color on its bluish-brown surfaces with fully mirrored fields. All small spot on Liberty's jaw will serve to identify this example. The reverse also exhibits full mirrors with rich blue toning on its chocolate brown surfaces.
