Owner Comments:

Lyman Allen #2.28 (KM #163) - Mintage: 5,659,355

This coin exhibits a soft strike with little high point definition, although the fingers on the right hand are discernible. The color and state of preservation are however excellent and it is a great red brown example of this date. As of this revision, there are only three graded higher by NGC, two MS65RD and one MS66RD. The coin was purchased raw for a modest sum in 2005 (which was less than a year after I began seriously collecting US/Philippine coins). Needless to say, I was very pleased with the results when I sent it to NGC for grading six years later.
