Cert #8689 82982398
Coin Number 172
A phenomenal coin and one that should claim finest or at worst tied for finest of this elusive low mintage date. Only 9,200 pieces were struck at the New Orleans Mint in 1880, this is the best seen by PCGS, and there appears to be a similar one at NGC at this grade level. Neither service has graded another above MS-62. Gorgeous greenish gold luster, a sharp, full strike and incredible unending eye appeal are present here. A coin that is worth the price of admission just to view its many charms.
