PR67+ Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Weight: 54.6 grains. Diameter:
1.294 inches. Die alignment: 180 degrees. On the obverse, a head of
Liberty faces left wearing a cap inscribed LIBERTY. The top of the
cap is ornamented with ears of wheat, cotton leaves, and bolls. E
PLURIBUS UNUM is at the top and the date 1880 is below with 13
peripheral stars arranged between. The central reverse expresses
the composition of the denomination within a circle of 38 stars.
The upper periphery displays the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

GLORIA and 100 CENTS are at the lower border. Struck in aluminum

composition (Judd-1651) and copper (Judd-1652). Sold individually
and as part of sets. USPatterns.com has traced only four examples
of Judd-1653. This coin is the finest certified example at PCGS by
virtue of its Plus designation. NGC has also certified a single
specimen in PR67+ Cameo (4/20).
Judd-1653, PR67+ Cameo
Finest at PCGS
The glowing silver-white surfaces of this Plus-graded Superb Gem are untoned, and both sides are silky-smooth from rim to rim. Both the technical quality and eye appeal are nothing short of breathtaking. The design elements are sharply detailed and the deeply reflective fields contrast boldly with the frosty devices. A few minor laminations (as struck) in the obverse field may help trace the pedigree of this important and rare specimen. Population: 2 in 67 (1 in 67+) Cameo, 0 finer (3/20).
