Rare and Popular Inverted Date 1865-S Eagle--Third Finest Certified1865-S 865 Over Inverted 186 XF 40 PCGS. A very interesting "overdate" that has the first three digits of the date logotype punched upside down in the exergual area. While not a unique occurrence, such upside down punches are rarely encountered. The inverted date is very scarce, but actually not as infrequently seen as the normal date. Normally only seen in Fine or Very Fine condition, this piece is far above average and it is, in fact, tied with one other piece as third finest certified (and presumably third finest known). The finest is an NGC AU 53 that was sold in our February '95 Long Beach Sale. Softly struck in the centers on each side, the coin has rich reddish-orange color throughout. It is distinguished by a milling mark on the cheek of Liberty and a small group of abrasions around star 5.
Ex: Melish (Kosoff, 4/56); Tate Cheseborough; Warren Miller. (NGC ID# 28ED, PCGS# 8643)
