Owner Comments:

A perfect example of Briggs 1-A with the mint mark properly positioned and the 1 and 8 in the date re-cut. A prohibitively rare R7+ in mint state according to both Briggs and Breen (not hard to understand with a total mintage of only 20,000), and the pops still bear this out. PCGS has found only two, both MS-64s, while NGC has slabbed five--three MS-64s, one MS-65 and one MS-68 (the Eliasberg coin). No noteworthy striking characteristics. Just a few stray marks on the obverse and reverse consistent with the assigned grade. Bought from a Goldberg auction February 2001, lot 1633.
