Owner Comments:

The 1921 has the second lowest mintage in the entire series at 246,000 So, because of this, it has foundational rarity, as they simply were not saved and so few were produced that there are very few survivors, despite being a relatively well-produced issue. It had the best strike out of all three coins that were produced in 1921. Although not usually heavily abraded; moderate abrasions almost always limit MS examples to 63 or 64. TRUE GEMS ARE SCARCE.

Oh, how I looked for this coin! When the Ozark collection went up for sale, which has been part of the NGC registry since 2006 and is currently ranked #5; I just saw an opportunity and had to act. Before that, the coin was part of the Calvin collection. Last appearing for sale in 2009. It is an old NGC #7 holder. I have had so much luck with that style of holder....finding many a quality coin in them. Only 31 graded MS 65 at NGC with just 2 finer MS 66 examples and no 65+ coins. At PCGS there are 57 in MS 65 and 7 in MS 65+ and 4 finer in MS 66. Census and Population numbers are certainly inflated due to resubmissions.

Strike on this particular example is well above average, luster is booming with good flow lines and prominent luster bands and the surfaces are smooth and unabraded. The telltale right facing field is clear. The piece has an original silver-gray tone to it.
