Original and flashy proof with an Eagle Eye Seal of Approval. A rare and underrated proof issue of just 200 coins that is vastly undervalued in comparison to the key 1856 proof cent.
An original example with a smooth surface free of contact marks and even wear. A late die state and an old holder. Very desirable as an early draped bust type coin with the small eagle reverse. This coin is important as the first US dime issue as well.
Great draped bust type coin. A condition census example of the B-3 die variety, it was struck from clashed dies and is rather weakly defined in the central devices, as is typical for the issue. Pretty pink tones highlight the rim with gorgeous, lustrous fields overall. An ideal example for the type coin collector!
