Lot Description
1860 $3 MS64 S NGC. CAC. The only Star-designated example of this issue certified by NGC as of (6/09), with only four finer pieces known across all reflectivity designations in the Census Report. The Star attests to the quality, while the CAC sticker attests to the grade, and the virtues of both are readily evident at first glance. Flashy, mildly reflective yellow-gold fields give way to sharply struck, slightly frosted devices, creating appreciable contrast appropriate for the earliest strikes of this low-mintage issue. Only a handful of small marks in the fields combine to preclude Gem status.
