1878-p Hit list VAM 227-1 “Slashed O” PCGS AU-55

Post by PeaceFull1 » Wed Apr 29, 2020 11:32 pm

Offering a very tough Hit List 40 1878-p VAM 227-1. This one has some nice color on the obverse and was graded by PCGS as AU-55. PCGS has a total pop report for this variety of 29 coins graded with the top pop being 2 AU-58’s. No MS/Uncirculated coins for this variety have been graded by PCGS. I personally sent this one to PCGS several years ago. I feel it could have graded AU-58 had I sent it in without attribution and may be a candidate for a possible upgrade. PCGS shows 1 recorded sale for this variety and that coin was an AU-50 that sold for $271 in an eBay auction in January 2018. The nicest example currently on eBay with a straight grade is an XF-45 example. Who knows how long it may be before a nicer example is available on the market. I feel with with overall scarcity coupled with the obverse color that $425 would be a fair price for this coin and I’m firm on that. It could be worth considerably more but hard to say with such a limited sales record and only 10 coins total graded AU or better by PCGS with the top pop being two AU-58’s.
I’ve sold several coins in the past on the old VW under the handle “GatorXUV”. This is actually the same coin that was posted there in 2015 about the strong clashing. At the time I felt it possibly had letter transfer(s or t)on the obverse but was inconclusive. The coin has toned more since that time so what I thought I possibly seen back then is completely obscured by toning at this point and now has “NO” chance of being listed for such.

Why does it look like an S mint mark?
