PR45 Details 1879 Flowing Hair Stella
Accessible Example of Judd-1635

1879 $4 Flowing Hair, Judd-1635, Pollock-1833, R.3 -- Ex-Jewelry -- ANACS. PR45 Details. "It's still a stella." For an interesting data point concerning the intense demand that the unusual stella or four dollar gold pieces see from collectors, one need look no further than lot 4831 of our FUN Platinum Night (Heritage, 1/2012), an 1879 Flowing Hair stella, whose description began as quoted above. Described as "Plugged, Harshly Cleaned, -- NGC Details. XF," the lot was already bid up to $13,800 within a week after the Platinum Night auction was launched. The final sale price was a healthy $32,200, indicative of the incredible market strength this type coin enjoys. We use the words "type coin" advisedly, as this pattern issue has been collected alongside regular-issue type coins for generations and is included in the Guide Book right after three dollar gold pieces -- not in the patterns section.
Though this stella was used in jewelry and shows numerous contact marks and cleaning aftereffects, "It's still a stella." Perhaps this light yellow-gold example is the right coin for your set?(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 28AZ, PCGS# 8057)

You gave me several alternatives and explained the pros and cons of each. I concluded that you were someone I could trust and that you would do a good job for me. And you sure did!
