Owner Comments:

From the Richmond Collection, lot 1421, bought at the auction March 2005. With an unknown mintage that has been estimated at only 16,000 pieces the coin is among the most difficult in the set to find in mint state (Briggs R7+). In fact PCGS has graded no mint state examples to date (best AU-58), while NGC has posted 2 62s, 2 63s, and one other coin equal to this at MS-64. A heavily toned example but attractive, with a few light marks in the left obverse field opposite Liberty's hand limiting the grade. No other marks or die cracks, but stars nine and particularly ten have been re-cut.
