With a mintage of 10,635 business strikes, the 1868 is actually somewhat available in comparison to the very rare 1862-1867 Philadelphia issues. It becomes rare in properly graded AU55 and it is exceedingly rare in Uncirculated. A single PCGS MS62 is the only Uncirculated example that I am aware of. For all intents and purposes, this AU55 is about the best available quality for the date.

This slightly prooflike example is typically abraded but it retains a good degree of its original flash. There is some orange-gold color on the obverse and reverse and the eye appeal is acceptable for the grade.

The last PCGS AU55 with CAC approval to sell at auction was Heritage 4/12: 6723. It brought $4,025.

Ex Heritage 4/10: 3734, where it sold for $3,220

CAC has approved two in AU55 with just one finer than this.
