2. Ex: King of Siam Sale (Bowers & Merena, 10/87), lot 2259; Auction '88 (Superior, 10/88), lot 293. This is the present example.
3. Ex: Palace Collection (Sotheby's, 1954), lot 2014.
This coin is lightly toned in irregular streaks of pale tan iridescence that are most readily evident over the right reverse. The devices are fully brought up in all areas. Identifiable by a fully retained mint-made lamination above star 12. (#62198) (PCGS# 62198)
