Legend Rare Coin Auctions Auction The Regency Auction 41 Oct-2020 We may have spoken too soon in our May 2018 Regency Auction, when we "unhesitatingly pronounced" a different example of this issue the FINEST that exists, because in this cataloger's opinion, this one is clearly prettier! WOW! Even if there were others that were numerically higher, this coin's look would put it over the top! This coin is out of this world beautifully toned! While the one in May 2018 and another one in May 2020 were gorgeous with colors that rank a 10 out of 10 on our color scales, this coin has them both beat! This coin is a gift of the numismatic gods! If all commems looked like this one, there would be so much more demand. The colors are simply mesmerizing! A blend of cranberry-red color and hints of clover dominate the obverse while the the reverse boasts lots of pale blue, soft sea-blue, and gold with lilac and indigo highlights. All the hues brought out by a vivid mint brilliance that swirls under the color. The eye appeal is AMAZING! PCGS 8, NGC 5, CAC 10. The two we sold realized $9,106 in May 2020 and the other for $9,988 two years earlier. The current PCGS Price Guide value is listed at $10,500 and a coin like this, which is top of its class, really could bring more when the hammer falls. We expect very strong bidding! Cert. Number 40443792 PCGS # 9406.00
