Lot Description
1879 $20 MS61 PCGS. CAC. This Mint State 1879 twenty takes a two-toned approach, as orange-gold and greenish-gold hues vie for attention. The surfaces are well but incompletely struck, and a couple of small alloy spots appear on the obverse. It is the peppering of extensive light abrasions on both sides, however, that ultimately determines the grade.
