Legend Rare Coin Auctions Auction The Regency Auction 33 Jun-2019 In the art world, there are Rembrandts, Picassos's, and Cezannes. In the coin world one can say THIS coin ranks among the greatest original toned displays Mother Nature has ever done. The quality of the coin is remarkable too. Remarkably clean and satiny smooth surfaces are all over. There is a touch of light irregular toning in the right field-not any scuffs. The reverse there seems to be an adjustment mark on the shield. There is one microscopic tick on the head (you need a glass to see it). A soft but fully glowing luster beams from all over. All of the toning is 100% natural. It probably took Mother Nature years to create the iridescent color swirls on the obverse. Gorgeous rings of blue/green/violet/gold open into puffy original white surfaces. The reverse is puffy original white with a hint of gold. Miss Liberty and every detail is frosty and is fully struck. The eye appeal is so strong, your eye balls will pop out and roll around! PCGS 4, NGC 8, CAC 2. No PCGS CAC piece has ever been sold via auction for this date and grade. There is a Collectors Universe of $17,500. We can't imagine this coin not by passing that number the day bidding opens. This is a dealer's long held personal coin. We can tell you he struggled hard to let it go. You'll know whose coin it is if you attend the auction and see someone in the back with tears and tissues when it goes off. No joking around, this coin means that much to him. One look and you too will forever put this coin in a special place in your heart. Good luck. We expect strong bidding here. This is a 1 in a million type of SUPERB GEM toned piece! Cert.
