Owner Comments:

Just a pristine, well struck, unmarked beauty, which, at the last moment, replaced a coin in this set graded MS-67* by NGC, giving you some idea of how highly I regard it. I had great difficulty attributing the variety of this coin as it seemed to have some charateristics of each of the five varieties listed in Valentine. I finally decided on V-4 even though the coin exhibits no die cracks and no defects between the fifth and sixth star. However the spacing of the 4 and 7 in the date and the fact that the date is high and the "1" is more heavily struck argue for this variety. Just a lovely, lovely coin with strong eye appeal. Bought from Joe O'Connor, October 2003.
