cool: One of my Favorite Coins ever made !! I recently bought one of these on line though Ebay. Now I usually wouldn't buy one of these on Ebay because of the HIGH Percentage of FAKES out there . They are an extreme amount of Counterfeits out there coming out of the Asian Countries, so BUYER BEWARE !
Anyway, I did my best to gain the seller's trust . I checked him out as good as I could, I bought one that is 1878S Double Die Reverse graded by PCGS as "Cleaning-XF Details" . Being a Double Die, I felt it was Rare and that the Coin is in better shape than a XF, maybe a AU PLUS the Price was too hard to pass up on . I think I paid just a little over $200 . I felt it being a DDR and it having some nice toning, plus it possibly being closer to a AU that it was a good deal .
What do you think ? happydance:

I agree with you Sal, I think it was a good deal. Not only are they faked a lot, I believe that many were lost overseas when they were used for international trade. Also , many were melted down. These dollars are more rare than their present prices reflect. Nice coin!

I agree it was a good deal. I also believe the coin looks more AU50 than EF.

Looks like it may be MD as I don't see any notching from these pics and has what looks shelflike. :agree:

The 2, the 4 and both rs show great doubling. I put it on my 32 inch TV, it is a DD.
