Ron Guth:

The 1786 Immunis Columbia, Eagle reverse is an extremely rare coin, of which only three examples are known. Some experts consider these patterns, primarily because of their high rarity, by Q. David Bowers makes an excellent argument that these are just normal issues that did not survive beyond a few examples. The three known examples are as follows:

1. John Roper Collection - Stack's 12/1983:213 (as EF), $22,100
2. PCGS XF45. Dr. Edward Maris Collection - H.P. Smith 6/1886:501 - Elmer Sears - Hillyer Ryder - F.C.C. Boyd - John J. Ford, Jr. Collection - Stack's 5/2004:289 (as Choice VF), $60,375
3. Titus - said to have been acquired from Richard Picker in 1970 for $7,500 - Frederick Taylor Collection - Bowers & Merena 3/1987:2095 (plated on the catalog cover)
John Agre: I had the PCGS XF45 example ex-Ford on display at the CRO table at the Baltimore Show in November 2012, selling it on the last day. No other example of this issue has traded hands since the Taylor sale in 1987.
