A silver example of the famous "Longacre" Seated series, it is probably one of the most beloved designs never to be accepted as coinage. This piece is a R-7 (4-12 minted). Second finest known. The PCGS-graded Simpson coin is the only one graded finer. Find out more about this coin and Round II NEWPS from the Long Beach Show.
