50C 1861 PCGS MS66


What a great time keeper of our Civil War era coinage. This coin is a dazzling HIGH END piece. How this survived the Civil War and 157 years is beyond comprehension. Not only did it survive, it did so in such an awesome way! Splendid surfaces have just a tiny scattered tick or two that can only be seen with a glass. The surfaces have a thick satiny texture. A surprising strong luster beams from all over. Absolutely gorgeous toning consisting of original moderate hues of green, blue, gold, rose, pale magenta swirl all over on both sides. You want a 157 years old GEM to look like this. Miss Liberty and the details are delicately frosted and are fully struck. The eye appeal is beautiful! PCGS 17, NGC 4, CAC 12 (hmmm there was clearly a resub on a coin). This coin last sold in our 11/2018 sale for $12,925.00. Full disclosure: we bought it. We have always loved it and didn’t want to see it go to a crack out/ wholesale dealer. Greta Civil War era coins do NOT appear with any frequency any more at all.  This will make a great addition to any GEM MS Seated set, Civil War set, or Type set. We sure do not see these often. We know in today’s market, MS Seated coins like this are great values!
