1879 $20.00 PCGS MS62

After many years of not handling an example of this date in MS62, this is the second I have had in around a month. The last one, graded by PCGS and approved by CAC, sold quickly and received multiple orders. This example is comparable with nice surfaces, good luster and pleasing natural green-gold, rose and orange color. As a date, the 1879 is seldom seen above MS62 and there is a huge price jump to the next grade as an accurately graded PCGS MS63 is worth in the area of $17,500. If I were doing a date set of Type Three $20 Libs, I would stick with a nice MS62 and use the $10,000+ I saved towards more coins!
