I saw this listing on Ebay. https://www.ebay.com/itm/204065224764 I am pretty sure it is N-1 Large date. The misplaced 1 is clearly visible in the dentils under the 8. On the reverse there are lines down to the N and I in United. It's really textbook. Truth is I really like this coin. I messaged the seller and told him to crack it out and Express it to PCGS. I would pay full PCGS price guide for the grade it comes back plus the Express grading fee. Waiting on a reply from the seller. Two things..am I right? Also what do you think of the coin? Thanks!

    It looks like a nice coin and that's a large date all day long.

    You asked...

    I think the coin has had MS70 or something similar applied and that it may already have been at PCGS and gotten kicked back as QC.

    The top of the 5 follows the curl as the large date does.

    That’s what I was thinking as well.

    I also don’t see it grading 64 at PCGS, (if it straight grades), so there’s little incentive for the seller to take the OP up on that offer, as 63 money is well below his asking price.
    But he does have make an offer, you never know….

    Large date all day long, still got some red color showing through but I don't believe it would reach 64 at PCGS, easily a 63 and from what I can see in those photos I believe it would straight grade as well, just my 2 cents ;)

    A quick follow up. The seller said no thanks to my offer. Finding a nice 1857 is becoming a challenge. I finally have the $$ for one. Patience and one will turn up.
