View the Original Auction
A satiny and lustrous specimen with bold cartwheel activity and pale champagne highlights. Raised circular lathe lines, similar to those seen sometimes on 1864 bronze Indian cents, can be seen around the center of the reverse, an unusual occurrence in the series and not seen often by this writer. Fewer than 10 examples of the date have been given a finer FH designation than the present coin by NGC. Choice for the grade.
