Coin Number 157

A key date that is certain to attract attention in any grade its found, after all a mere 797 pieces were struck for general circulation, today about 50 exist in all grades. This one is tied with one or two others as the finest seen. We feel it would easily grade higher but the normal minor scuffs are magnified by the prooflike surfaces–a fact that always limits this low production issue. All are prooflike, and hence and handling marks show more than they should. The fields have a pleasing orange gold color with no signs of mishandling, keeping the eye appeal as high as possible on this prized rarity.
