CAC.Lustrous mint red fading to light steel brown and olive with at least a third of the mellowed mint color remaining. The surfaces are satiny and mark-free except for a small spot of darker chocolate brown toning (not carbon) in the field over star 1. The reverse is flawless. MDS with doubling on the eye, nose, and lips and quadruple outlines along the back of the ear (all machine doubling, not a doubled die). A bit softly struck at the top of the obverse and bottom of the reverse, but the portrait is needle-sharp. Graded MS63 and CC#1 in the Noyes census, his photo #59866. Our grade is MS64+, very close to MS65. A superior example of this tough "Redbook" variety, clearly the finest known by a good margin. A candidate for the finest "Redbook" registry collection. The attribution and Doug Bird Collection provenance are noted on the PCGS label. PCGS population 1; none finer. The only RB graded at PCGS.(PCGS # 37043) Value $40,000 - UP Ex Catherine Bullowa Auction 12/4/2005:374-Douglas F. Bird Collection (lot ticket included).
