Description:
Brilliant 1878 8 Tailfeathers Dollar, MS66
1878 8TF $1 MS66 NGC. VAM-17. In the earliest days of Mint production, a few pieces were coined that are called one-sided proofs, meaning that one die (usually the obverse) was highly polished while the other die remained unpolished. If only one side of the coin was ever displayed, why worry about the appearance of the other side?
This 1878 silver dollar is a later version of the early one-side proofs, although its production was for an entirely different reason. A new, freshly made or freshly lapped obverse die was placed in the press, and the obverse of the coin received a prooflike appearance. The older reverse die produced frosty luster. Both sides are fully brilliant and extremely attractive.(Registry values: P5, N4719) (NGC ID# 253H, PCGS# 7072)
