1864-L 1c PCGS/CAC MS66 RB (L on Ribbon) Exceptional Gem of this Famous Key Date

DLRC #: 375174 // PCGS #: 2080

Wow! An amazing gem MS66 RB with CAC approval for this popular key variety. There are just 4 coins to make this grade at PCGS with RB surfaces. None finer. By contrast, PCGS has graded 3 MS66 RD examples, and the last one to appear at auction realized $29,900 back in January 2003 (Heritage). This coin is a beauty and 80% red at a fraction of the value of it's less stable Red counterpart.
