Some stout prices on GC last night

Not sure who “Colonel” is; many of that collection sold for solid prices on last night’s GC auction; can’t believe hammer price for 1879-S rev 78 V6 in PCGS MS 60 - over $2450 with juice!! I was just monitoring 1878 / 79-s rev 78 stuff. :o

So as a follow-on, I'll bet the use of the us of 2 'B' reverse dies at Carson City in 1880 also caused some consternation back east a year after San Francisco got the stop use order. Any idea when / why the B reverse dies were deployed? Was the shipment of C reverse dies late in arriving from Philly?

Re: 1878 P Morgan VAM-163 but what appears to be a broken D on the reverse.

got roughly 1000 & 2000 point gaps to close. I love a challenge! But, the ladder may be too tough to ascend. The 78-S set is tough!! Got to maintain focus...

Mine is raw, XF; looks ok at arm's length; may have had an old cleaning; color looks fine.

Coin arrived from Canada; thanks so much! Shipment arrived from across the border faster than some recent eBay purchases.
