Auction Details

Firm Sale Type Name Date Notes Lot
Goldberg Auctioneers Auction September 2009 Pre-Long Beach Auction #54 - 9/09 Hawaii Collection Sep-2009 Sharpness G6 but moderately rough. Shallow dark verdigris covers many of the protected areas. There is a fine hairline scratch from the throat to the back of the head, a shallow pitmark or nick at OF, and a few tiny rim nicks on both sides. The date is weak but readable, LIBERTY is strong, and the reverse legends are complete except for TES-OF. Dark olive and steel with medium brown highpoints, the obverse glossy in spite of the roughness. Called G6 net AG3 and CC#2 in the Bland census. Noyes has this one as G5 net Fair-2 and tied for second finest of the three examples known, his photo #23111. The finest is in the ANS, so this is the best example available in spite of the low grade. DWH #1782.
Estimated Value $10,000-UP.
