Description

Rare 1879 Flowing Hair $4 Gold Stella

1879 $4 Flowing Hair, Judd-1635, Pollock-1832, 1833, R.3, 6, Impaired Proof, Obverse Graffiti, Polished, NCS. A bright, mishandled specimen with the initials HE in the right obverse field. Technically a pattern issue, the Charles Barber "Stella" design has been elevated by its own popularity to inclusion among regularly issued coins. Reportedly, 415 restrikes were minted, a good percentage, like this piece, being impaired to some degree. Despite its obvious distractions, this is a legitimately rare issue that is always in high demand from gold specialists. (NGC ID# 28AZ, PCGS# 8057)
