The 1872 cent has long been considered a key date in the series. A mint state coin with red brown surfaces is especially elusive and desirable. Pretty, silky surfaces with wonderful eye appeal. CAC approved for quality.
Much scarcer than the Large Date version, the Small Date is extremely rare in such high grades. Only 3 pieces are graded as such by NGC. The frosty reddish-orange surfaces truly bring out an amazing look.
