1C 1887 PCGS MS66+ RD
WOW! This is an amazing, SUPERB GEM. You can not beat the quality or eye appeal.
Beaming with totally original, fiery mint red luster, this coin is exceptional in every way. The luster is intensely brilliant with a wonderful golden overtone. The devices are sharply impressed on both sides, with no softness anywhere. A tiny tick or two, and a few micro-flecks (need to look really hard with a glass to see them) are all that keep this SUPERB coin from an even higher grade. Regardless, the eye appeal ranks among the very FINEST 1887 cents that survives!
PCGS 27, NGC 3, CAC 12. There are 6 in 66+ RD at PCGS, and the only one to ever sell realized $15,275 in our December 2015 Regency Auction and the current PCGS value is listed at $17,000. Just three are graded finer, and the most recent of those sold over a decade ago! We are certain that this is the FINEST that will be available to collectors anytime soon!
