1841 Second Restrike Proof Breen 1-C R6+. PCGS graded Proof 66+ Brown. CAC Approved. Reverse of 1840. Beautiful bluish steel brown with hints of iridescent rose in protected areas of the obverse. The fields are nicely reflective with moderate to deep mirrors on the obverse, the reverse not quite as reflective as the obverse but still very attractive. There is a tiny spot of lighter toning right of star 3, another left of that star, and one in the field off the lower lip. This is the Breen plate coin for the variety. Weight 77.5 grains, consistent with Breen's series IV strikes from the early die state. Our grade is Proof-64. The attribution and Missouri Cabinet provenance are shown on the PCGS label. PCGS population 1; finest graded. (PCGS # 35351) .
Estimated Value $10,000-UP.
