Owner's Comments

B-5, BB-27. R-1. An absolutely lovely coin, the visual appeal of which easily transcends its numerical grade. Delicately varying shades of golden toning aptly accent assertively struck, fully vibrant underlying surfaces. The fields exhibit an exceptionally atypical degree of reflectivity that only further heighten a bold strike. In fact, this extraordinary luster causes the viewer to look twice in case they have somehow confused this outstanding example with a Morgan dollar! Its visual allure surpasses most mint state survivors of this type.

Expert Comments

David Hall: The finest known example is the coin sold in a Catherine Bullowa auction in December, 2005 for $1,265,000. It was descreibed in that sale as "very choice to gem unc" and it was subsequently graded MS66 by PCGS.
