Cert #8633 18381872

Coin Number 98

This is the second finest to exist of the date, with glorious luster and color. The strike is sharp and the surfaces are ever so close to the full gem level. A couple of minor bagmarks are present, one on the neck, another above the date. Excellent eye appeal and so fully frosty and bright, its hard to imagine any other 1861 eagle could compare. This issue is fairly common, with several hundred available in lower grades, but precious few in the choice or finer grades.
