1807 Draped Bust 25C MS60 PCGS
B-1, R.2. The obverse and reverse are toned with gunmetal-blue in the mid-fields and especially the rims, with the centers showing a trace of gold on the obverse, and lighter silver-rose on the reverse. The surfaces are better than one might expect for the grade, with a few shallow nicks when closely examined, but none are too distracting. The strike is unusual on the obverse as the coin reflects a twisting motion that caused the peripheral devices to be stretched and thin in a counter clockwise direction, as opposed to being square when struck. This reflects the aging Mint equipment in use at the time, and the slightest wobble or loose bolt would cause this effect. The central devices are sharp and not affected by this striking feature. (PCGS 5316)
