    Glittering Proof 1879 Flowing Hair Stella

    1879 Flowing Hair PR 63. Formerly sold in our D.E.A. and U.S. Marshals Service Sale where it was described, "A glittering proof specimen, softly struck through the central portions. Technically a pattern issue, this Charles Barber design has been elevated by its own popularity to inclusion among regularly issued coins. A few faint hairlines are discernable along with a minute scuff in the right obverse field. Reportedly, 415 restrikes were minted, a good percentage either used in jewelry or otherwise impaired."
    Ex: The D.E.A. and U.S. Marshals Service Sale (HNAI, 12/88), lot 1105. (NGC ID# 28AZ, PCGS# 8057)
