Near gem with plenty of orange-red color highlighting the devices. Sharply struck with heavy obverse peripheral die cracks. A choice mint state example with fantastic eye appeal! CAC approved for quality. The number one set holds one of the six finest known, a MS66RB.
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.
