Lot Description
1878 8TF $1 MS66 S NGC. CAC. One of the most eye-catching obverses ever seen on this one-year subtype. The portrait and surrounding fields are bathed in a psychedelic swirl of yellow-orange, magenta, ocean-blue, lime, and violet hues. The strike is crisp, and the shining surfaces are minimally marked, as befits a Premium Gem. The reverse, by contrast, offers pale gold-gray toning that is less lively but offers understated and elegant eye appeal. Of the 22 NGC-certified Eight Tailfeathers coins graded MS66 (with none finer, as of 6/10), only five received the Star designation.
