Lot Description
1869 $1 MS62 PCGS. Mass meltings were staples of the Mint's early history, and with the present debates over the intrinsic value of the cent and nickel, it seems little has changed in the intervening years! Yet this piece and others like it evaded such a fate, a fortunate fact for numismatists today. Both sides display soft, pleasing luster and slightly above-average detail. Hazy patches of gray and violet patina appear in the fields, as do light to moderate abrasions. Population: 11 in 62, 23 finer (1/08).
