Estimated grade. Displaying clean, frosty surfaces, intense cartwheel luster, and a superbly bold strike, the Cardinal specimen is widely acknowledged as the fourth finest known specimen of the famed 1794 Dollar, exceeded only by the trio of superb gem "66s". It's provenance traces to FCC Boyd, the builder of the "World's Greatest Collection," and earlier from the Virgil Brand Collection. Image.
