WB-101. Not much to say about this beauty. Strong strike, even natural toning. No sign of any die cracks or marks of any sort. Top notch for the grade. Breen tried to divide this date in two on the basis of thin numerals or heavy numerals in the date. Without the benefit of a photo to help decide this coin would appear to fall in the heavy numeral camp. (The collection also includes a WB-102, the 55/54 overdate in PCGS MS-66, a brilliant coin. I have always felt there should be room in a Registry series to display both pieces.) This coin again from Joe O'Connor, the source of many of the best gems in this collection, April 2002.
