Although the 1879 is more available in Mint State than prior dates, it is seen less often than the high-mintage 1880-1882 issues. Choice examples with relatively smooth surfaces and full luster are seldom encountered. This boldly struck representative exhibits rich reddish-golden color overall with a minimum of noticeable contact marks.
