1864. Bronze, With "L". PCGS graded MS-66 Red. A wonderful example of this key date. An amazing coin, one of the absolute finest of this date and major variety with "L" on the ribbon and the pointed bust on Liberty. The digits 186 show repunching high which adds further interest. Outstanding Red color, with immediate and full vibrancy on the obverse, and well matched on the reverse. Only a few minor specks are present when examined. The strike is sharp on Liberty's feathers as well as the wreath. It would be hard to even imagine a finer example of this prized issue.This exact coin is pictured on the CoinFacts website to represent the finest seen by PCGS of this prized issue. Don't expect to find a finer example, as this one is tied or the absolute best seen! Pop 4; none finer at PCGS. Tied for the finest examples graded at both services. (PCGS # 2081) .
Estimated Value $25,000-UP.

Realized $34,075
