Cert #8667 5652563
Coin Number 139
This is one of the rarest of the Carson City issues, mintage of 4,543 pieces, and today about 75 to 85 are known. There are no mint state examples, and precious few AU examples around. Most lack any signs of luster, which is seen in abundance in the protected areas here. Furthermore most surviving examples show a soft strike (seen here) at the centers, and the surfaces are generally more abraded than most other Carson City issues as these saw hard circulation from the day they were released. This coin ranks high as one of the finest to survive of this elusive and challenging date and mint.
