1855 Coronet Head Cent. Slanting 55. NGC graded Proof 64 Brown. A chestnut-brown Proof, with smatterings of faded, mint red brilliance flashing about. Crisply struck, far better than the usually seen 1855 Large Cent. A couple of minor marks appear in the obverse fields, but these all appear to be natural and were, most likely, in the planchet when the coin was struck. If this is the case, the grade is conservative. NGC has graded 2 in Proof-64 Brown, 1 in Proof-65 Brown, and 2 in Proof-65 Red Brown, so this piece ranks near the top of the condition ladder.
Estimated Value $3,800 - 4,200.

Realized $4,370
