1878-S 25c NGC MS65

DLRC #: 361630 // PCGS #: 5510

A very pretty gem of this key issue. Tied for finest at NGC though there are a couple recorded MS66's at PCGS (though they haven't been seen at auction since 2001!). Very popular and scarce issue that is missing from most collections in any grade. Just 140,000 examples struck and very few survive.
