1878 Dropped letter reverse

Post by vamnuke » Sat Aug 15, 2020 5:43 pm

Recently, there was a post about an ICG-slabbed AU 1883-S Dropped D. Well, I dug my dropped letter specimen out of the box long enough for a photo op. PCGS MS 62 (V195). I suspect this there aren't may of these error coins around. Enjoy!

Not holdered as a Dropped Letter. Someone offered it up for sale as a dropped letter, maybe here. Years ago. Maybe an old Fey auction; anyway, I got the coin at a very attractive price in my opinion. For whatever reason, there wasn't a whole lot of interest.
