Cert #8701 29583110

Coin Number 187

Here is one of the great rarities of the New Orleans Mint, only 800 pieces were struck in 1883 there, and this is the finest one known, and only mint state coin to survive. A total of 40 are believed extant. Lustrous and pleasing for the grade, with ample luster and a good strike. The surfaces have minimal marks and none are deep or detracting. Prooflike fields as so few were struck, the dies never had a chance to wear down from their original polished state.
