This 1879 has been graded MS61 by PCGS.  The 1879 is a scarce date, particularly in strictly uncirculated condition. Overall, it is similar in rarity to the 1855-1858 P-Mint issues.  When available, the 1879 can be anything from VF to AU.  In Unc-60, the 1879 is very scarce and in choice or gem mint state the date is surprisingly rare.
