B-30,BB-116. Pointed nine, 4 vertical lines. Rare variety. Super tough in high grade - PCGS AU50 (CAC)! I bought this unsually toned coin in a raw state out of a superior auction in 2005. It seems to have apparently been wrapped in a newspaer and has print letters embossed on the coin from toning. These can be read by placing the coin up to a mirror. It appears to say, "drape", "Spec" and " turban". At the bottom on the neck the letters ST appear. This is one of my favorite coins plus being a rare BB-116 in a condition censis stateI I sent the coin initially to NGC where it received a AU53 BB-117! I was quite happy until I realized they had made a mistake - the coin was not the R8 BB-117 but was a BB-116. When I crossed my entire set to PCGS they DOWNGRADED it to an AU50. Alas no justice. Gorgeous multicolored rainbow toning. R4/5. Est.Pop. 60-100 Coins.
