Owner's Comments

CAC {B-16, BB-158} As a rule, most collectors including myself, do not prefer dark coins. In my opinion, this beautiful coin is an exception to the rule. An estimated 850 to 1,500 specimens exist in all grades. Only 25 to 50 exist in grades AU-50 to AU-58. {CAC Population 10, Only 40 Higher}
