1849-C G$1 Open Wreath NGC MS63 PL

DLRC #: 89508 // PCGS #: 7506

Nice, strong strike, with exceptional obverse detail (the front of the coin looks like something out of the Philadelphia Mint). Fully Prooflike, with loads of reflective luster on both sides. The finest of only four (possibly five) examples known, easily exceeding the next best coin by a full 5 points. One of the greatest rarities in the entire U.S. coin series. This fabulous coin was completely unrecorded in any pedigree listings and only recently appeared on the market...
