Lot Description
1858 1C Large Letters MS66 PCGS. CAC. High Leaves Reverse, Closed E in ONE. Nearly as perfect a Flying Eagle cent as can be obtained, the present Premium Gem has a razor-sharp strike and completely mark-free pumpkin-gold surfaces. Thorough inspection beneath a loupe finally locates a single pinpoint fleck on the reverse rim at 5:30. The combined efforts of NGC and PCGS have certified just one example finer, an MS67 PCGS that realized $40,250 in our 2003 FUN Signature. The present piece will prove much more affordable, yet provides commensurate eye appeal. Population: 26 in 66, 1 finer (11/10). From The Volunteer Collection.
