Choice uncirculated example of this exciting and very difficult Classic head large cent. Luminous luster throughout the smooth dark chocolate surfaces. Handsome tints of blue toning on the reverse and a lovely olive-gold sheen on the obverse. The striking detail is bold and there are no significant distractions or abrasions. Terrific for the grade!
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.
