Expert Comments

Ron Guth: Among 1855 Large Cents, only the Slanted 5's are known in Proof condition, and, among those, only Newcomb 10 and Newcomb 11 were struck as Proofs.  Newcomb 11 is a Proof-only issue.  The first Newcomb 10s were struck as Proofs, followed by circulation strikes.  As a result, deceptive Prooflike examples of Newcomb 10 are sometimes offered as full Proofs.
