Lot Description
1878 7/8TF $1 Strong MS66+ S NGC. VAM-37. Golden-brown and cherry-red shades fill the obverse center but cede to navy-blue and olive-green at the margin. The reverse has a cobalt-blue center with bands of lime-green and orange-red near the rim. An aesthetic delight for the toning connoisseur. Well struck and coruscating with minimally abraded surfaces. Unobtrusive strike-throughs (as coined) are noted near the tip of bust truncation. As of (7/13), the sole NGC-certified example to receive both a Star and a Plus designation at the MS66 level. None have been certified as MS67 or finer.
