    1849 25C MS65 PCGS. CAC. Briggs 1-A. The famous and popular Compass Point reverse, showing a circular anomaly at the top of the leftmost vertical shield stripe.

One small area of charcoal patina shows under the right (facing) eagle's wing. Population: 2 in 65, 0 finer (7/15). This is the sole CAC example in this grade.(Registry values: P3)
