Lot Description
1897-O 10C MS 65 NGC. Despite its evil connotations, this issue's mintage of 666,000 pieces is an important ingredient in its desirability among both circulated and Mint State date collectors. A simply exquisite Gem, the crimson, blue, and orange-russet toning that envelops both sides lightens somewhat over the central obverse. There are no detracting features that would seem to bar the lustrous surfaces from an even higher grade. Population: 11 in 65, only 2 finer (2/00).
