Lot 1161
1857 25C MS65 PCGS
A splendid barely toned example that exhibits a mostly brilliant finish. The devices are frosty and the fields are satiny. The strike is typical with minor softness noted on Liberty's forehead and several of the stars. Close examination reveals a single dark toning spot at the second S of STATES on the reverse. A fine example of the date, and also a delight from the aesthetic perspective. Despite a generous mintage of 9,644,000 pieces, proportionately very few Gem-quality survivors are known. Worth a generous bid. Housed in an early green label PCGS holder. (PCGS 5442)

Sold for US$ 2,457 inc. premium
