Description:
Elusive MS63 1879-S Eagle
Single Finest With CAC Seal
1879-S $10 MS63 PCGS. CAC. High mintmark. The '79-S is collectible in AU and scarce in the initial Mint State grades. Select examples are very rare and the issue is practically unavailable any finer. The present piece is the sole CAC MS63 example with none finer. The lustrous sun-gold surfaces are boldly struck and minimally abraded for the designated grade. Interesting die fill is noted within the lower loop of the 9, perhaps from the same unfinished logotype punch as the so-called 1879 overdate (Breen-6993). Stars 2 and 4 exhibit minor repunching, likely artifacts from a deep hubbing. Population: 5 in 63, 1 finer (10/12).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 265R, PCGS# 8686)
