Lot Description
1858 1C Large Letters MS66 PCGS. CAC. What an incredible coin, the kind that even at arm's length makes a wonderful impression! The velvety surfaces are smooth as a baby's skin, and for a copper-nickel cent, this piece produces the closest to cartwheel luster that the present cataloger has ever seen. Under a loupe the overall lilac shade resolves to some lighter yellowish color in the fields and deeper violet shades around the devices, but there is no trace of distraction to be found, save for a tiny tick in the obverse denticles between 5 and the last 8. Definitely high-end for the assigned grade. PCGS has certified 27 coins in MS66, with one finer (6/08).
