1834 C-1 R6 (as a proof). PCGS graded Proof 66 Red & Brown. CAC Approved. Mint red fading to light steel brown, 30% of the faded red remaining. The fields are highly reflective with deep mirrors, and the eye appeal is exceptional. The best identifying mark is a tiny speck of darker steel toning in the middle of the cheek. EDS, Breen state I, before any die clashmarks. The obverse and reverse are illustrated on the color plates at the back of the Breen encyclopedia. An unquestioned proof strike and certainly at the top of the condition census. Our grade is Proof-66. Weight 81.9 grains. The attribution and Missouri Cabinet provenance are shown on the PCGS label. PCGS population 1; the only Proof RB graded for the variety. (PCGS # 35307) .
