1839-D $2 1/2 MS62 PCGS. Variety 1-A....
Only D-Mint Classic Head Issue
Just Four Coins Finer at PCGS
The present coin is a rare MS62 specimen, with attractive orange-gold surfaces and bright mint luster. The design elements are strongly impressed, with razor-sharp detail on Liberty's hair and just a touch of softness at the junction of the shield and eagle's wing on the reverse. The weak branch stem that extends over the right side of the D in the denomination identifies this coin as a representative of the more-available Variety 1-A.(Registry values: P4) (NGC ID# 25G6, PCGS# 7700)
