Description:
Original, Gem Uncirculated 1878-CC Quarter, Struck From The "Cancelled Die" Obverse
1878-CC 25C MS65 NGC. Briggs 1-A. While not especially scarce as a die variety, the 1-A is always of interest as the obverse appears to have been struck from a cancelled die. A long, straight die scratch runs along Liberty's upper leg and terminates at the left (facing) elbow. Die rust is also seen on the obverse--obviously it was thought that this die would not be needed, but then someone's mind changed and the die was used after having been cancelled. Very few other cancelled die coins are known in U.S. numismatics, but such pieces are always an interesting addition to a collection. This is a lovely and totally original Gem coin. Much of the original brilliance is still evident beneath the smoky golden and blue toning seen on each side. Sharply defined with the thick mint frost one expects from a Carson City product. Population: 19 in 65, 5 finer (7/04).(#5509) (Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 23V9, PCGS# 5509)
