1874 Arrows 50c NGC MS61 - Superb Eye Appeal

DLRC #: 378487 // PCGS #: 6346

Wow! A superb coin for the grade. At first glance, this coin looks like an MS64, so we had to study it carefully to determine why NGC only gave it an MS61 grade. On very careful examination there are light hairlines in the fields, but the eye appeal for an MS61 is mind-boggling. Creamy white and free of marks, we've actually seen gem coins with less eye appeal than this one.
