Description:
1879 PR 64 Cameo NGC. Ex. Trompeter. A needle sharp strike and a minimal amount of surface marks put this coin in the near-gem category. There is a nice cameo effect which, when coupled with the never-ending mirror fields, makes for wonderful eye-appeal. The lovely, even, orange color only adds to the appeal of this coin.An identifier for this date is the detached "floating" curls behind the neck. This coin has the reverse of 1876-1878. As an identifier we offer the tiny lint mark below, and slightly to the right of the first star.
While the listed mintage is 30 pieces, this date is actually rarer than the lower mintage 1877 and 1878. There are only 6-7 pieces known, and only 1 piece has been certified by NGC (10/98) and 1 by PCGS (10/98). The PCGS coin is a PR 60, making this the finest certified coin, by far. An interesting sidelight is the fact that T. Harrison Garrett obtained this coin from the Philadelphia Mint in 1879. It remained in the collection until sold at auction in 1979. Population : 1 in 64, none are finer.
Ex: Garrett Collection (Bowers & Ruddy, 10/80), lot 1675; Auction '84 (Stack's session, 7/84), lot 1454. (NGC ID# 28FH, PCGS# 8819)
