Tied for Finest at PCGS
In 2006, when the first edition of the Encyclopedia of U.S. Gold Coins came out, Garrett and Guth noted that "The regular-date coins have just started to be recognized for their rarity in MS-64 or higher grades, and none have been graded finer than MS-66 by the major grading services." While collectors have had a few years since to catch up on the coins' rarity, it still holds true that there are no Superb Gems in the combined certified population (8/13) and just seven MS66 examples graded by PCGS.
This Premium Gem has rewarding luster, apricot-gold in places with zones of lighter yellow. As was sometimes the case, flatness comes out in the strike, particularly on Liberty's knee and the top of the torch. Even so, both areas are lustrous (no wear), and rolling satin luster graces surfaces that are remarkably smooth. An ideal choice for the series enthusiast who insists on nothing but the best.(Registry values: N10218) (NGC ID# 26FB, PCGS# 9150)
