Lot Description
1877 1C MS64 Brown NGC. In addition to well known scarcity in all grades, the 1877 is prized as a condition rarity in Mint State. In fact, most high grades survivors of this low mintage, key date issue are proofs. This is an attractive near-Gem with rich glossy-brown toning that yields to flickers of orange-red luster in the more protected areas around the peripheries. The otherwise bold strike wanes a little at the obverse feather tips, but the already pleasing eye appeal benefits further from a noteworthy lack of distractions. Population: 22 in 64 Brown, 10 finer (1/05).
