Owner's Comments

B-5,BB-27 3 Leaves. Ex. Garrett coin (Lot 679-Sale2). Spectacular Luster with beautiful overall golden toning. This coin was sold at the ANA 7/08 Heritage Auction and then purchased by me from Don Willis on the same day. I truly believe this coin is more perfect than most MS63's or 64's. I had two graded 64's (Both BB-27) to compare with this coin. This coin was better. The coin was in a green PCGS55 holder and sold for $77500! Now it is in a PCGS58 holder but still is undergraded. See for yourself! Common variety. R1. Est.Pop. 2000-3000 coins. Note the 1893's' has more coins graded by PCGS (close to 4070 coins) than the BB27 (less than 1300)! For Unc. coins compare 35-MS Morgan 1893'S' to 20-MS 1795 FH for all varieties of 3 leaf! I grade my current coin MS-64-65! No plugs known although one was holdered as a plug. The consensus is that this is a mistake!
