The present lot offers a remarkably preserved Gem BU representative whose surfaces are drenched in frosty luster and rich honey-golden color. The strike is typical of the issue, with softness of detail noted in the center of the obverse over the TY in LIBERTY and on the reverse over the eagle's trailing leg feathers. A few scattered abrasions are noted overall: a vertical group of five milling marks below and through star 1 near the left obverse border, and two parallel cuts on the eagle's upper left wing tip near its neck. Both NGC and PCGS, combined, have seen just three coins in MS65, with three finer (10/05). A remarkable opportunity for the gold specialist.(#8881) (Registry values: N14284) (NGC ID# 28H8, PCGS# 8881)
