Owner Comments:

This piece was purchased raw along with a 1920 and a 1934-D.I sold the 1920, it graded only AU58. The 1934-D graded MS65! I sold that sucker, after replacing it, as well! I decided to keep the '24 because of the gold and orange colors. There wasn't a question as to this piece being MS and I had it pegged at MS63/64! I think the severely stressed dies through me off as to the grade. Boy was I surprised when this piece was returned from NGC in a MS65 labeled holder! The obverse has a touch of orange while the reverse is lemon yellow! I wish my camera could catch the exact colors of this piece.
