1808 1C S-278 Classic Head PCGS AU58BN

SKU: 35745831

Availability: In stock


A stunning example of the scarcest variety of 1808 Classic Head Cent. PCGS has graded 2 examples in AU58, with five pieces called Mint State. This is a phenomenal coin that exhibits glossy luster over the high points, and has eye appeal that sets it apart from the vast majority of Classic Head Cents, regardless of the assigned grade.As with most S-278s, this specimen exhibits some weakness at the periphery; however, Liberty's bust is fully struck up, as is the wreath and "ONE CENT". A magnificent coin that puts many Mint State examples to shame.
