Is this an actual 58/7 overdate?

    I think someone got a cherrypick on this one, but I could be mistaken. Is this the 58/7 overdate or is it just pmd that is causing the effect on the wing? Seems pretty high grade, looking like couple hundred bucks uptick if it is an overdate
    Thoughts?

    I don't think so.
    I had one 10-15 years ago and sold it so I could get a straight 1858 plus other coins I wanted.
    I don't see the PUP down by the date.

    I don't think so, either. There will be a readily-visible be a die dot above the first 8 on the 8/7. The broken wing occurs on coins that aren't the 8/7, as well as those that are.

    agreed, the die dot is missing, and others [non overdates] have the missing wing.
