Exceptional 1787 Fugio Cent 8-Pointed Stars PCGS AU-50
1787 Fugio Cent, "8-Pointed Stars" Type. Newman 15-Y. W-6915 variety. Choice PCGS graded About Uncirculated-50.
156.8 grains. A sharp chocolate brown example that is about as nice as they come. The Stars on the reverse are completely visible and well-defined (they're the two reasons why this is such a popular variety). The surfaces are all original being natural and the only items worth noting some scattered striations, weakness as often seen on this issue and a small natural depression on the lower right reverse edge. The all important Stars are crisp and clear. This is easily the best example we've offered of this variety.
