Description

Beautiful MS 64 1879 Eagle

1879 MS 64 PCGS. While struck in rather substantial numbers (384,770 pieces), the 1879 is uncommon in mint state and of the greatest rarity in near-gem condition. This is the finest PCGS coin certified, and it is only challenged as the finest known by a single NGC MS 64. Fully struck, the surfaces have a rich satiny luster. There are very few marks on either side, and the coin has the overall eye appeal of a full gem. A short mark is noted to the right of star 1 on the obverse, and a horizontal abrasion is seen on the reverse below the eagle's right (facing) wing. (NGC ID# 265M, PCGS# 8683)
