Rob Ezerman. Best of the 4 he has owned!
DRG. FT. Got him to sell it from his do not sell box.
Ex DRG Collection. Full Talons. This and 1981-s are the next toughest dates to find with full talons after 1980-s.
Ex DRG Collection. Full Talons. Dr Golan searched at least 35 bags of 1980-s, over 70,000 coins, in order to find this coin and 40 or so other ms67s (over half the pcgs pop!). Like 1981-s this date virtually cannot be found in ms67 in a mint set. This is the toughest date in the set to find with full talons.
TNFC. Full Talons. Best of the 2 they had for sale.

Ex DRG Collection. Purchased from James Sego Rare Coins. The 1981 Susan B Anthony Dollars were included in mint sets only. The S's had to be shipped to Denver to be included in the Denver packet. A bumpy road along the way possibly contributed to these coins getting much more banged up than the P and D counterparts. It's estimated that it takes 1500-2000 mint sets to find an ms66, probably 100 times that to find an ms67. And the coins out of the 3 coin SBA mint sets are usually even worse. This coin is a freak for the date with booming luster and well hidden flaws. It was originally found by clad coin expert Rob Anglemier, then owned by DRG and then Murphy.
