Lot Description
1879-O $1 MS65+ PCGS. The 1879-O dollar can be obtained with minimal difficulty through near-Gem. The population declines in MS65, and finer specimens are elusive. This high-end Gem offering is one of just eight so-graded by PCGS, with 14 pieces finer (all MS66). Lustrous surfaces are essentially color-free on the obverse, while the reverse assumes medium-intensity hues of russet-gold, blue-green, and whispers of gold-orange and bright rose The design elements are generally well brought up, including partial definition on the hair over Liberty's ear. A few light scuffs prevent an MS66 grade, but both sides are better-preserved than typical of this issue.
