Owner's Comments

B-3,BB-11 Silver Plug, 2 Leaves. Rare in plug, R6-7? R5, unplugged. PCGS AU55(CAC). This is ex. Garrett and Cardinal and is the finest BB-11 specimen Plugged or unplugged! This coin is uncirculated and at least MS63 or higher. Original beautiful toning with obvious plug! Est.Pop 50-75 for all grades. Head of '94. Beware of typical flat type stars seen in all BB-11, BB-12 and BB13. Grading services rarely take this into consideration when grading these varieties! This specmen actually shows 6 stars which are not flat, the only coin I have seen to show stars of this quality in the BB11-BB-13 series!
