Lot Description
1875-S 20C MS65 NGC. FS-301. Per Cherrypickers', "the top of a digit, likely an 8, is visible in the denticles below the primary 8." Misplaced date examples of the 1875-S are often encountered, but Gems of any variety remain scarce. The present piece is untoned and highly lustrous with a nearly mark-free appearance. The strike is good despite minor incompleteness on the stars near Liberty's head and on the eagle's right (facing) claw.
