Coin Number 146

Here is a second example of this nearly unobtainable issue. Furthermore it is a gem, with the Ultra Cameo contrast as clearly displayed by the surfaces. Boldly frosted on Liberty’s profile and the surrounding stars, with the reverse matching with thick abundant frost on the eagle and legends. The mirror fields are highly reflective, and not as much of the orange peel effect as these planchets were not heated enough to produce that result during striking. Of the 8 or 9 specimens known in Proof, two are impounded and off the market. Thus only a few are available in any given generation to buy. This one came from the famous Byron Reed Collection long ago.
