Estimated grade. Sold by Bowers and Merena Jun '84 price realized $220
David Akers (1975/88): The 1879 is relatively common in all grades, more so than the 1878, but the date is suffiently scarce in uncirculated condition to keep it from the "common date gold" classification. Gems are not regularly seen.
