Lot Description
1917-D 5C MS66 PCGS. Both sides of this Premium Gem have satiny surfaces with bright luster beneath pleasing light gold toning. The overall strike is exceptional for this issue, of which David Lange (2006) says: "Nearly all examples seen suffer from poor detail definition. This is due in large part to ... die erosion." The date and LIBERTY, for example, both seem to jump off the surrounding field, and the horn and tail are strong. The surfaces are pristine with only a few tiny flecks on the reverse. PCGS and NGC have certified fewer than 20 Premium Gems, and none finer (10/08). From The Scott Rudolph Collection. See: Video Lot Description
