    Near-Gem 1879 Flowing Hair Stella

    1879 Flowing Hair PR 64 PCGS. An attractive example of this experimental design and denomination. The surfaces have a faint speckling of reddish color from improper mixture of the gold and copper alloy, but this is largely only visible with magnification. The fields are moderately reflective with light frosting on the devices and a few insignificant marks on either side. The striations that are commonly seen on the restrikes of 1880 (but backdated to 1879) are only faintly visible on this coin. A lovely, unimpaired example of this rare and highly sought-after experimental coin. (NGC ID# 28AZ, PCGS# 8057)

    Weight: 7.00 grams

    Metal: 86% Gold, 4% Silver, 10% Copper
