CERTIFICATION#: 16634861

Owner's Comments

Heavy obverse toning with an unusual array of gold, rust, and sea green. The reverse is rather ordinary with the exception of the mint luster. This coin appears to be a long time album resident. Total PCGS AU population is 62 with 13 in AU 55 and 43 graded higher. The BCCS rating is R2.
