Cert #8585 5761557

Coin Number 43

Towering quality for this scarce issue, with a reported mintage of 18,623 pieces, of which about 75 exist today. This example is the finest one known, the only MS-63 to survive. The surfaces are a delight with satin smooth fields bathed in luster, the strike is sharp and the eye appeal exceptional. Delicate traces of copper toning are present. Curiously the Small Date variety here has a Plain 4, while the Large Date version has a Crosslet 4. A simply amazing coin to represent this scarce, early issue.
