1855 1C N-10 Slanted 55, RB MS65RB Certification #13045292, PCGS #406175
1855 N-10. Rarity-1. Slanted 55. MS-65 RB (PCGS). Beautifully blended reddish brown surfaces on both sides with more mint red than often seen for the grade. Highly lustrous and nicely struck. Another example of this variety whose better examples have often been mistaken for Proof format in early auction catalogues. From the famed Anderson Dupont sale, Part I where it was described as follows, "Blazing red Proof. Minute rim nick opposite first star, visible with a glass." The surface tones have undoubtedly mellowed a bit since 1954, but the piece was plated and can be matched with some study. Another delightful Gem. From the Warren Snow Collection. Earlier from our Anderson Dupont sale, September 1954, Lot 1009 for $80. Stacks 11/08: Lot 3118.
