    1880/79-CC Reverse of 1878 Dollar
    VAM-4, MS67, Tied for Finest Certified

    1880/79-CC $1 Reverse of 1878, VAM-4, Top 100, MS67 NGC. The downstroke of the 7 is clear in the lower loop of the second 8 in the date. The 9 underdigit was apparently irregularly polished and what remains in the top of the 0 in the date does not necessarily resemble a 9, but of course, it could not be anything else. This overdated obverse was combined with the Flat Breast reverse, leftover from two years previously. Reverse of '78 dollars are uncommon in high grades and this piece is at the pinnacle of preservation. The all-brilliant surfaces are highly lustrous and free from any mentionable abrasions. Sharply struck throughout. Census: 2 in 67, 0 finer (2/19).
