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.
Only a single example of this variety is graded higher, with it bringing over $13,800 in auction. This lightly circulated example of this popular variety displays smooth, lovely surfaces with nice originality.
