Lot Description
1880 $1 MS66 PCGS. CAC. Although this Premium Gem possesses a number of attributes, chief among them has to be the gorgeous toning. The colors include golden-orange, rose-orange, frosty pastel yellow, pastel green, and pink on the obverse. The reverse is arguably even more attractive, with shades of fiery-orange, golden-red, yellow, green, aquamarine, teal, and plum. Cartwheel luster and boldly struck design elements add to the eye appeal. An as-made strike-through is present at Liberty's chin. Neither PCGS nor NGC has awarded a higher numeric grade to a single example (8/13).
