Gorgeous remaining red tints in the obverse fields with bright golden red reverse surfaces. One of the finest in existence for this key date in the middle Large Cent years, a few scattered spots account for the color designation, but we have seen darker, less attractive pieces designated as "Red" in recent years. Tied with 2 other pieces at PCGS as the finest graded.
This famous doubled die cent is a very popular and desirable collector coin. Very strong doubling is evident on the date, LIBERTY, and IN GOD WE TRUST. The secondary image is spread clockwise to the primary image. This is a remarkable Red Gem. It has blazing cartwheels, is sharply struck, and the doubling can be easily seen with the naked eye. CAC approved for quality and eye appeal.
