Owner Comments:

WB-101. Genericly priced, no one seems to have ever given this date any consideration. Even Breen in his massive encyclopedia passes it by with just a brief comment that it is usually seen struck from clashed dies. This coin anyway is an exception to that statement with no clashing visible. Attractively toned and "star" rated by NGC, this coin stands close to the top of the slabbed universe (I refrain from claiming this to be among the finest known as there has to be some wonderful unslabbed coins still out there). Bought from Bill Nagle, May 2003.
