Legend Numismatics is the undisputed 3CS specialist in the world today. We have built the top 1+2 Sets in both MS and PR. We know what we have and have not seen. We can tell you, by fact this is the FINEST 1851O We have seen. It actually IS a tad better then the one in our Law/Simpson set.
To start, this is the only true prooflike example we have ever seen. The surfaces are exceedingly clean and sleek. You can see the mirrors with out twirling the coin. A wonderful and totally original light pastel mix of colors (you don’t have to imagine these either) flows all over. Miss Liberty and the details are frosty and have crisp sharp strikes. The eye appeal is terrific!
PCGS has graded only 3 in MS66+ (one is impounded in the Law Simpson collection). Quality like this coin has is irreplaceable.
