Coin Number 53

With a mintage of 20,095 pieces, it doesn’t take a lot of imagination to know that this date and mint is going to be a rarity in any mint state grade. This one certainly is, and has long been the finest reported and graded of this date. Bathed in frosty luster with a hint of reflectivity in the fields. The surfaces are attractive and free of all but a few minor signs of handling. There is one other MS-61 lurking in the PCGS Population Report along with another graded MS-60. Of the approximately 100 pieces known, this one has long been regarded as the finest seen. Another fantastic condition rarity at the top of the charts!
