Lot Description
1879 $20 MS61 PCGS. FS-801. The Cherrypickers' Guide comments that FS-801 is "an extremely strong doubled-die reverse." The reverse legends exhibit a wide spread when observed beneath a loupe. Undesignated by PCGS as a doubled die, but obvious as such. The honey-gold surfaces display cartwheel luster and the expected number of wispy abrasions.
