DLRC #: 361162 // PCGS #: 8935

Wow! A simply stunning example of this Civil War-era gold issue. Just a few uncs survive of this date and despite the MS62 grade, this coin would look appropriate in an MS63 holder! Tied with just one other a CAC for finest to be approved by them for quality and eye appeal. CAC is a third party grading service that grades the grading services (PCGS & NGC) and only approves the best coins in holders. CAC coins have been bringing significant premiums at auctions as more and more collectors are demanding the sticker before they buy.
