Owner Comments:

Although the S/s variety enjoys a seperate listing almost no coins seem to have been slabbed (only three at NGC with none?! at PCGS). So it's hard to tell how many better ones may be out there. One indication of how tough it might be to find one is that neither Jim Gray nor Jules Reiver had one listed in their inventories at the time their collections were sold, and both had substantial collections of many different die varieties. Briggs does state in his book that the variety is unknown in mint state, but that was more than fifteen years ago. Still this is the only AU graded, and a lovely natural coin with no significant blemishes. Bought from a Heritage auction August 2007, lot 5746.
