Gorgeous remaining red tints in the obverse fields with bright golden red reverse surfaces. One of the finest in existence for this key date in the middle Large Cent years, a few scattered spots account for the color designation, but we have seen darker, less attractive pieces designated as "Red" in recent years. Tied with 2 other pieces at PCGS as the finest graded.
Original and flashy proof with an Eagle Eye Seal of Approval. A rare and underrated proof issue of just 200 coins that is vastly undervalued in comparison to the key 1856 proof cent.
