Lot Description
1879-O $1 MS66 NGC. Though the strike on 1879-O dollars is highly variable, this Premium Gem boasts some of the sharpest detail for the issue. Immensely lustrous surfaces are generally silver-white with occasional coral-pink and green-gold elements that grace the fields. Careful preservation is a defining attribute. While the Treasury releases of the 1950s and early 1960s brought to light thousands of 1879-O dollars in Mint State, most of these showed unsightly marks, and interested collectors far outnumber the pool of Gem and better survivors. This MS66 coin is tied for numerically finest graded by NGC or PCGS (11/08). From The Sanderson Family Collection.
