1879 Stella $4 PCGS/CAC Proof 62 (Flowing Hair)
Also known as Judd-1635, this is the world famous Stella -- named for the 5-pointed star on the reverse. Just 425 of these coins were struck, mostly for the purposes of handing out to Congressmen to examine. A lovely rosegold tint with stark originality, this piece is super high end for the grade and attractive as it should be. In fact, we actually view the coin as a Proof 63 when it comes to quality and technicality, but we're happier to have it as a nice, original Proof 62. CAC approved for quality.
