2676 1877'CC' Choice Brilliant Uncirculated CH BU $325.00

The obverse displays a high date that slopes downward from left to right. Golden toning is accented by traces of peripheral mauve over a full measure of icy mint frost. This lower mintage date is notoriously difficult to acquire within this desirable grade range.

Choice About Uncirculated with rich mint frost giving the visual quality of full Mint State. First 'S' in STATES shows only a partial upper loop, and a fine die line is seen in the lower loop of the reverse mintmark. Its marvelously bold lustre places this coin in a category by itself.

Close examination reveals a pair of well concealed obverse hairlines beneath the toning on Liberty's cheek, otherwise this majestic piece would easily attain the designation of strong Gem.

2696 1907 Choice Brilliant Uncirculated CH BU $140.00
