Cert # 569220-003

Coin Number 111

Here is another amazing condition rarity. Of the 16,700 pieces struck today we known that there were two die pairings used to create these. This is the normal date issue, with the date placed high and closer to the bust than commonly seen. The normal date issue is considerably rarer than the blundered 1865 over inverted 186 date variety. The present coin is the finest known of the normal date issue. It retains considerable mint bloom and despite some minor handling marks looks considerably better than most lower grade examples. The unusual wobbly line below the eagle is caused by die clashing, and this is the outline of Liberty’s tiara and hair. A magnificent example of this prized issue.
