Owner's Comments

Laibstain. A very nice toned and well struck coin, from late 1800's with good strong strike and nice toning. Tied with three others for second finest for the issue. Many coins from San Francisco from 1898-1900 were sent to the Philippines and many circulated there in commerce.

Expert Comments

David Akers: Like the 1898-O, this is a very underrated issue, especially in...Gem condition...
