3CS 1851 PCGS MS67+
Tied for FINEST graded, this coin a wonder piece well worthy of its lofty designation!
Of course to the naked eye the surfaces look flawless. Much to our surprise, even when using a strong glass they remain flawless! You can spend an entire day looking at this coin and still find ZERO impairments. There is a slight trace of prooflike mirrors around the star on the obverse. Deeper original golden brown toning is splashed around-but does not fully cover both sides. There is also light hints of original sky blue on the reverse. The strike is incredible and is beyond anything we have seen for any MS 3CS. The eye appeal is fantastic!
