1869. PCGS graded MS-63. A glittering example with reflective surfaces on both sides. It is difficult to find a lustrous specimen like this with a generous amount of Prooflike surface on both sides. The strike is above average, but with some lightness on the high parts of Liberty's hair at the back of the shoulder. The reverse is quite sharp, not perfect, but close.

As a Mint State coin the present 1869 is a significant rarity. The grading services have seen few. In the entire world of numismatics there is every reason to surmise that only 20 to 30 exist. Clearly, the word opportunity is relevant today. Only 2500 minted. Pop 6; 3 finer with 2 in 65, 1 in 65 (PCGS # 7990) .
Estimated Value $12,000 - 13,000.

Realized $13,800
