Marvelous Eye Appeal, Near Gem Original, Gun Metal Gray-Blue Patina, Fully Struck, CAC Approved. A near gem original 1871 Philadelphia strike with deep gun metal gray-blue patina on both sides. Strike is completely executed with high relief stars and complete lower reverse eagle claws and arrow feathers. At first glance, I assume this piece graded at least AU53 as wear is limited. Then seeing the assigned AU50 graded made me debate whether to assigned a Choice or Gem original quality rating. Choice was selected but this offering is close to gem status. Housed in PCGS Gen 5.0 Dupont hologram holder with CAC approval. Taken in a recent trade and returning as a second offering. Hurry on this one! December 1969
