USA, 1907 Roman Numerals High Relief Wire Edge MS62 PCGS

A simply splendid Mint State survivor of this most storied coin in American numismatics. Rich orange-gold and boasting what is essentially unbroken mint luster, the fields display just a touch of friction while the only real noticeable wear is at Liberty's breast and knee, which is the very highest point of the design is sometimes soft even on Choice Mint State coins. As many High Reliefs ended up in non-numismatic hands at time of issue, lightly circulated specimens like this probably attest the fact that their owners handled them and showed them off from time to time--in fact, in the years soon after their issue, it might have cost as much as $30 to acquire a specimen, a symptom of how desirable it was to own one. The demand has not faded today, with some eye appealing specimens like this selling into the five figures at auction. (9135)
