A lovely near-gem example of this popular design type. Though technically a pattern issue, these are collected alongside the early small cents. We actually see less examples from 1857 in this condition than we do the more popular 1856. This fresh example displays lustrous, reflective fields with attractive, original surfaces. CAC approved for quality.
A desirable early draped bust type coin with the large eagle reverse. 4 berries are counted on the reverse branches. Scarce with attractive surfaces, the light rainbow tints highlight the well-struck devices. A lovely select uncirculated piece with fantastic overall eye appeal.
