Lot Description
1867 25C MS63 PCGS. It seems that this is one of those underrated issues that, for some reason, has been ignored in the market arena. PCGS has certified just 12 coins in all Mint State grades from MS60 to MS64, with none finer. In our own auctions, dating back to the beginning of our archives in 1993, we have only offered two in MS64, two in MS63, two in MS62, and two in MS61, including all grading services, and it has been more than two years since we last offered a Mint State specimen. This example is housed in a green-label PCGS holder. Both sides are fully brilliant with satiny silver luster, framed by a ring of light gold at the borders. The fields are slightly reflective, and the devices are frosty. The design motifs on both sides are exceptionally sharp, and the overall eye appeal is superb. Here is an opportunity for the advanced collector to acquire an attractive example of a rarity. Population: 3 in 63, 2 finer (1/08).
