    Victoria 5 Cents 1880-H MS65 PCGS, Heaton mint, KM2. Despite a generous mintage of 3 million pieces for this year, few examples of the 1880-H 5 Cents have survived in as impressive a state of preservation as this gem specimen. Only surpassed by two examples at PCGS and none at NGC, this gorgeous piece boasts steel-blue patina over scintillating mint luster, its strike impeccable giving perfect detail to the devices. Approaching the absolute limit of quality for the type, and worthy of a premium bid accordingly.
