1845 Second Restrike Proof Breen 1-C R6+. PCGS graded Proof 66 Brown. CAC Approved. Reverse of 1840. Golden light olive with delicate overtones of rose and blue steel. The fields are highly reflective on the obverse with deep mirrors while the reverse is not quite as reflective, those mirrors moderate to deep. There is a speck of carbon left of star 6 and another on the rim over the left top of the M. Somewhat softly struck in the centers, which is characteristic of the Series VI restrikes. A very attractive piece in spite of the trivial defects. Our grade is Proof-63+. Weight 78.1 grains, Breen's Series VI. The attribution and Missouri Cabinet provenance are shown on the PCGS label. PCGS population 1; the finest graded. (PCGS # 35375) .
Estimated Value $8,500-UP.
