    Tierra del Fuego. Territory gold "Popper" Gramo 1889 MS62 PCGS, KM-Tn3 ("Rare"), Ensayo-23.1. Brilliant Mint State with boldly struck devices and trivial surface handling preventing the choice technical designation, yet a fine example of this great rarity, most attractive for the assigned grade. Though mislabeled on the insert as the more common KM-Tn5 variety, this extremely rare pattern issue is immediately identifiable by the dots flanking the date on the obverse and the denomination on the reverse, respectively. Currently the single finest certified example of this important type at either major third-party grading service, and certainly amongst the finest of the 5-6 pieces extant known to the cataloger.
