    Phenomenal Dragon & Phoenix Dollar - Tied for the Finest Certified

    Republic silver Pattern "Dragon & Phoenix" Dollar Year 12 (1923) MS67 PCGS, Tientsin mint, KM-Y336.1, L&M-80, Kann-680a, WS-0113, Wenchao-884 (rarity 2 stars). Large characters variety. Utterly fantastic--simply a perfect confluence of rarity and condition combining the finest certified grade at both NGC and PCGS with the most elusive of the two principle varieties of this type. Meaningfully unimprovable, the surfaces appear immaculate and icy white with booming cartwheel luster from all angles, and a light mottling of russet tone. While providing an estimate on such a phenomenal example of such an iconic issue is necessarily pure speculation, we note that an MS66 in Spring 2018 brought an astonishing 690,000 Renminbi (roughly $100,000) in a Chinese auction.

    NOTE: This lot was manufactured in China and was sourced from outside the United States for this auction after September 1, 2019. Under the new US tariffs on Chinese goods, collector's items from China will be subject to a 7.5% import tariff. Any clients who wish to take delivery of this item in the United States should be aware of this added charge, and consult their tax adviser with any questions.
