Expert Comments

David Akers (1975/88): This is another very scarce and underrated coin, particularly in high grade. Although specimens in very fine or extremely fine are not unusually rare, AU and Unc. pieces are seldom encountered. I have seen only a few specimens that I would consider strictly mint state.
