Owner's Comments

The single finest known of the 8x5 stars type, this specimen traces its provenance to the collections of Virgil Brand, B.G. Johnson, T. James Clarke, and Harold S. Bareford. In its earlier appearances, Stack's described this coin as a "cameo-like Gem; wholly prooflike," and John J. Ford described it as having "magnificent, mirror surfaces in blue, rose and steel."
