First, this coin has superior deep, crystal clear, clean, and highly reflective mirrors. Even using a strong glass there are no imperfections to be found. If you twirl the coin, the mirrors look like a freshly formed sheet of ice. The obverse is a heart pounding spectrum of pale amber/green/rose/neon like blue, while the reverse is all blue and purple. ALL the colors are totally ORIGINAL. Miss Liberty and the details are frosty and have sharp strikes. The eye appeal is as beautiful as a peacocks plume during mating season!
Only 710 were minted. PCGS 28 , NGC 44, CAC 5. We doubt if even 10% of certified 1887’s have killer colors anywhere close to this coin! If you are building a vividly toned set, this coin is a “must have”! Plus, these simply are too cheap today.
