Description

Affordable 1879 Flowing Hair Stella

1879 $4 Flowing Hair, Judd-1635, Pollock-1832, R.3--Repaired, Whizzed--NCS. Impaired Proof. Many collectors will rejoice at the opportunity to bid on this piece, having a desire to acquire a stella, but lacking the appropriate budget to purchase a high quality example. The surfaces have numerous small pit marks, suggesting that the coin has been sweated, a process designed to remove tiny bits of gold from the surface, before recirculating the piece. It has apparently also been repaired, with indistinct details at the center of the obverse. Hairlines on both sides also indicate that it was once cleaned. It is likely that this example was involved in the jewelry trade at one time.
From The Casa Becca del Norté Collection.(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 28AZ, PCGS# 8057)
