The present lot offers a Choice BU representative whose surfaces are drenched in frosty luster and reddish-gold 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 seen on the obverse, most notably a group of four teardrop-shaped scrapes along the lower left border. NGC and PCGS combined have seen just four coins in MS64, with five finer (9/01).
From the Peter Crist Collection. (NGC ID# 28H8, PCGS# 8881)
