1858 1C Small Letters PR65 Certification #30999030, PCGS #2043

Expert Comments

Jaime Hernandez

A very scarce issue with a mintage of about 100 total coins originally struck. The 1858 Small Letters variety seems to be a bit more available than its Large Letters counterpart. Regardless, it is still a very scarce issue struck in four different known die marriages with approximately 60 total examples surviving for the Small Letters variety.
