Lot Description
1860 3CS MS67 S NGC. The magnificent obverse toning on this Superb Gem undoubtedly elicited the coveted NGC star. The center is tobacco-brown, and bounded by concentric rings of plum-red, ocean-blue, and straw-gold. The reverse is pearl-gray with glimpses of aqua and tan near the rim. As of (11/11), NGC has certified three pieces as MS67, but only the present coin in addition boasts a Star designation. Ex: Dallas Signature (Heritage, 10/2009), lot 196, which realized $10,925. Seller is donating a portion of their proceeds, and Heritage is donating the same portion of the Buyer's Premium, from the sale of this lot to the National Numismatic Collection at the Smithsonian Institution. See page 3 for details.
