1879 Flowing Hair Stella $4 to lead coins and medals sale

A US 1879 Flowing Hair Stella $4 proof is to star in Bonhams' Coins and Medals auction in Los Angeles on September 6.

1879 Stella US
The 1879 $4 Stella was never actually issued

It's expected to make around $50,000-60,000.

The coin has a lower estimate than other Stellas as it displays signs of tooling, meaning one of its former owners has attempted to remove blemishes, and polishing.

While this will make it unappealing to high-level collectors, others may jump at the chance to get a classic rarity for a bargain price.
