Lot Description
1859 1C MS66 PCGS. This golden Premium Gem has great visual appeal, with attractive luster and only a few minor spots. A lint mark appears in the field near the Indian's nose. The feather tips are a trifle weak, with bold details elsewhere. This is an impressive first-year type piece. PCGS has only graded a total of 19 pieces at this level, with only one having received a Plus designation, and neither PCGS nor NGC has assigned a higher numeric grade to a single example (11/12). From The Richard P. Ariagno, M.D. Collection.
