Owner's Comments

B-6,BB-241. This common variety is often found in high grades of AU or better. This coin is graded PCGSAU53 but could easily go up to AU55-58. Nice steel-like toning with lots of luster. Great strike. R1-2. Est.Pop. 1000-1500 coins.

Expert Comments

Ron Howard: Imagine - not one, but TWO Gem MS-65 examples back-to-back! That's the unlikely pleasure I experienced in the PCGS grading room in June, 2010. One example was beautifully toned, the other predominantly white; both were original. Despite my affinity for toning, I thought the whiter example, overall, to be a bit superior. Both were fully struck. Thank you to whomever submitted this remarkable pair!
