|Legend Rare Coin Auctions||Auction||The Regency Auction 28||Sep-2018||Ex Link as note on the holder. In the old days, this awesome coin would have been called Gem Brilliant Uncirculated. With the more nuanced numerical grading, the MS64+ grade is SPOT ON, and we have seen MS65s that lack the bold luster and beautiful looks of this coin. One of the best struck examples we have seen, with fully and crisply formed devices that stand out against the highly lustrous surrounding fields. Bold, brilliant, radiating cartwheel luster beams from the fields on both sides, with hints of some reflection in the reverse fields. Pearly, silver surfaces are framed by a touch of golden tone at the peripheries. The eye appeal is stunning, especially for the date and grade; the quality really does rival numerous GEMS we have seen! PCGS 112, NGC 72, CAC 26. PCGS has graded 10 coins in MS64+. This coin has been off the market for nearly a decade, purchased privately in September 2009. The current Collector's Universe value is $4,000 and the most recent PCGS MS64+ CAC sold in November 2017 for $3,720. An MS65 would cost about double, and may not have the stunning luster and eye appeal of this GEM! Cert. Number 29531047 PCGS # 6160|
