This piece shows considerable evidence remaining of the 88. While the 9 shows an unrecognizable jumble at the top left loop, the first 0 shows prominent "horns" atop, from the left and right sides of the underlying 8's top loop, which fail to join at the apex of their respective arcs. Both sides are highly lustrous, with deep golden-orange color and a complete absence of singular distractions. This delightful specimen of Territorial gold stands squarely atop the Condition Census of known examples of this available variety. It is one of five pieces graded in Gem condition at PCGS, with none finer; NGC has graded an additional five pieces in MS65, again with none finer (11/07). Listed on page 356 of the 2008 Guide Book.
From The Madison Collection. (PCGS# 10013)
