Despite a fairly large mintage of 207,121 pieces, the 1837 is actually a scarcer date. The population figures indicate that most survivors are in the XF to AU grade range. Mint State examples, on the other hand, command a lower proportion of the total population, and full Gem pieces are far and few between.
The near-Gem example described here displays bright, frosty yellow-gold surfaces with hints of underlying green. Sharply struck design elements are apparent on both sides, with especially nice definition in Liberty's hair, the star centers, and the eagle's plumage. Full Gem status was evidently precluded by a few wispy obverse handling marks. Population: 7 in 64, 3 finer (5/08).
