My most recent cherry-pick. Picked it for $19 shipped and it just came in today!

The sellers pictures had this orange glow over them that made it look like it was going to come in cleaned (but even so, couldn't pass on a small motto for such a price). However, it must have just been the lighting they used since the surfaces look original in person. I think it has just enough detail to warrant an AG03, maybe a G04 if the TPG is feeling good that day.

I've been actively trying to cherry-pick one of these for years and it's really neat to cross this one off of the bucket list. Thanks for taking a look!

It is definitely a small motto. Here's a quick side by side with some images from PCGS:



Thanks!

I always check those 1864s for that variety every time I see one... Still looking, and that is another great cherrypick in any grade

Great Find! Congratulations on your fine eye.

Besides the 1858/7 cent, this is another of the varieties I have been trying to cherry-pick for some time now - no success so far. Your find clearly shows they are still out there.

Thanks all!

GERMANICVS, I've gotten fairly lucky with my cherry-picks over time. As long as you keep searching, I'm sure you'll find some nice hitters like the 8/7 and this small motto. I hope you do! Wishing you luck.
