1847 Second Restrike Proof Breen 1-C R6-. PCGS graded Proof 66 Red & Brown. CAC Approved. Reverse of 1840. Light steel brown faded down from mint red, a third of the red remaining. The obverse fields are highly reflective with deep mirrors while the reverse is not quite as reflective. Those mirrors are moderate to deep thanks to the microscopic die polishing lines running NE-SW that cover the fields on that side. Very attractive with outstanding eye appeal. The best identifying marks are a tiny spot of silvery toning at the dentils over star 5 and a speck of darker toning on the neck. Our grade is Proof-65. Weight 78.4 grains, Breen's series IV. The attribution and Missouri Cabinet provenance are shown on the PCGS label. PCGS population 1; the only RB graded. (PCGS # 35388) .
Estimated Value $15,000-UP.
