Lot Description
1879/8 5C PR66 PCGS. CAC. Breen-2514. The overdate status of this issue, from a proof mintage of just 3,200 pieces, is in dispute. Some experts believe the overpunched digit is an 8, while others believe it is a 9. The present coin is sharply struck, with light golden patina and hints of blue and green highlights.
