1897 5C MS62 NGC. This satiny Liberty Head type coin displays luminous champagne surfaces with occasional pepper specks of russet. The corn ear to the left of the wreath bow is partially detailed. Several light marks on Liberty's cheek limit the grade but cause little distraction. Attractive Liberty Head date and type coins in the lower Mint State grades are seldom encountered. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
