1868. PCGS graded MS-62 CAC Approved. A lovely frosty example with hints of delicate pastel colors. Radiant and exhibiting delicate shades of color other than the usual brilliant gold. A very pleasing example of this scarcer date. So much, then, for the luster, although we wish we could go on about how beautiful it is. As for the devices, these were struck with sufficient power by the dies that they left most design elements showing, and showing clearly, unlike many where a few areas mushy. Perhaps the ribbon knot on the reverse could have been sharper, but this is being hypercritical. Only 4850 minted. Pop 41; 41 finer (PCGS # 7989) .
Estimated Value $6,000 - 6,500.
