Description: 1856 C-1 Breen 1-A (with lump on I in UNITED) R7 (as a proof). PCGS graded Proof 64+ Red & Brown. Mellowed red with hints of rose on the reverse. Possibly lightly cleaned long ago but the color and eye appeal are excellent. The fields are nicely reflective with moderate mirrors on both sides, but those fields do show faint hairlines. There is some bluish steel toning on the rim at stars 3-4, a very tiny struck-through line in the field midway between star 2 and the chin, and a tiny planchet flake on the rim below the ribbon end. The lump on the I in UNITED is strong. Illustrated in the color plates at the back of the Breen encyclopedia and on page 454 to show the variety, and it is the final piece listed in the census on that page. Our grade is Proof-62. Weight 82.9 grains. The attribution and Missouri Cabinet provenance are shown on the PCGS label. PCGS population 1; 2 in 65RB. (PCGS # 1330) . Estimated Value $6,500-UP.
