One of the "big five" toughest dates in the series, the 1889-CC is generally impossible to find with attractive original color. Most uncirculated '89-CC are untoned, and almost half of those are prooflike, which would not fit the "look" of the Sunnywood Collection. We were fortunate to locate a true mint state survivor with legitimate peripheral blue and russet album toning. Earlier sold as "Choice BU" in a Stack's auction during the early 1990's, this coin would seem to merit an MS63 designation. From our friend Ron Karp of New York Gold Mart.
