1858 Flying Eagle 1c PCGS MS66+ (Small Letters)

DLRC #: 1468529 // PCGS #: 2020

A popular issue with none graded finer by either service. Tied with 3 others as the only PCGS MS66+ examples, this piece exudes gorgeous golden copper luster and fantastic eye appeal. We find the small letters variety to be slightly tougher and more desirable than the Large Letters. PCGS+ grade for premium quality at the top of end of the assigned grade.
