Commentary.
A posthumous design apparently implemented by Mint Chief Engraver William Barber after his predecessor's death on January 1, 1869.

The Pollock reference notes that this piece weighs 92.1 grains, with diameter of 0.953 in. and die alignment of about 170 degrees (rotated slightly from coin turn).

Physical Description.
The well-contrasted surfaces on this near-Gem show silver-white coloration tinged with pinkish-gold that is more prominent toward the rim. NGC Census: 2 in PR64, 1 PR67 finer. These 3 specimens are the only pieces certified at either PCGS or NGC (12/08).

Provenance.
Ex: King Farouk; Palace Collections of Egypt (Sotheby's, 2/1954), lot 1879; Sol Kaplan; Stack's private treaty.
