Description & Analysis

1847 is one of the rarest dates of Braided Hair cents as a proof. Just over a dozen are believed to exist, all of these from the proof-only die marriage N-42. This unique obverse die was mated with the familiar reverse seen on most 1845-49 proof cents, suggesting that this issue was yet another coined some years later than its date suggests.
