Cert # 1828509-001
Coin Number 95
This is one of the finest known of this date. The original mintage of 11,100 pieces was reduced to 130-150 pieces today. This is one of the two or so best. The luster is amazing, with bright yellow gold dominating the surfaces. The devices are somewhat frosty, and the eye appeal is splendid. As the Civil War was closing in on the New Orleans Mint, coinage suffered and mintages plunged. Here is one of the best around and a prize to examine.
