Description

1857-O 25C MS 62 PCGS. Briggs 2-B. As on all known examples of this variety, the stars at the left are sharp while those at the right are flat. In addition, the head of Liberty is flat while the reverse is mostly sharp. Very lustrous with natural smoky lilac-gold color over lightly marked surfaces. The '57-O is a much scarcer issue than its mintage figure of 1.18 million would suggest and an undervalued rarity in Mint State. Population: 3 in 62, 3 finer (6/99).
From the Ronald W. Brown Acadiana Collection; Ex: Pittman II Sale (Akers, 5/98), lot 1337, where it realized $1760; 1949 CSNS Sale (Kelly, 1949), lot 1160, where it sold for $3.75. (NGC ID# 23TF, PCGS# 5443)
