Owner Comments:

Bought from a Goldberg auction in September, 1999 lot 1260. The only coin graded at this level. It is trailed by one MS-66 at each service. The fields are mark free and there are no distractions of any sort. The coin is lustrous with mottled silver-gray toning. Certainly among the finest known, if not the finest known (I have not seen the PCGS coin graded MS-66. If that coin is indeed stronger than the magnificent coin in the Sunnywood collection [PCGS MS-65, premium quality I would add] it would undoubtedly closely rival this coin.)
