    Description

    PCGS 1820 MS 65. JR-7, R.2. In Breen (1977) the two varieties of proofs listed for this year do not seem to correspond to the spacing or style of lettering seen on this coin. It was, however, struck from heavily lapped dies as there are innumerable faint die striations in the fields on each side that are responsible for the deeply mirrored flash seen on this coin. The lowest hair curls of Liberty and the eagle's plumage are weakly defined, but elsewhere the striking details are quite well brought up. There are a number of tiny abrasions in the fields, but none of singular importance that would be especially helpful in tracing this coin's pedigree. The devices are heavily frosted, and with the coin being brilliant, it affords the viewer the opportunity to see the fully contrasted white on black cameo effect this piece has. Obviously rare, this is the finest known JR-7 as the previously finest known piece was listed in the JR reference as an MS 63 from Stack's Bareford Sale. Also, most likely one of the finest known for the year. Population: 6 in 65, only 2 finer (6/94). (NGC ID# 236X, PCGS# 4492)

    Weight: 2.70 grams
