    PCGS 1855 Wass Molitor Ten-Dollar AU 50. K-6, R.7. We believe this piece to be the finest known of this rare variety. It is the highest grade given by either of the major certification services according to the data currently available in the late spring. This very elusive variety shows a curious surface anomaly--the second 5 in the date appears to have been drilled out and replaced, a 2 was probably removed from the die made up three years previously. The obverse and reverse are styled after the contemporary American ten-dollar but with several differences in the inscriptions as well as rather pronounced (and frankly cruder) design differences on the central motifs. This variety has been lacking in many major collections and when found is usually only low grade, e.g., the Garrett specimen was only VF 20. Unlike most specimens, this piece is especially well struck in the centers. There is deep reddish color over both sides and a few medium sized field marks. A very rare opportunity to acquire this key territorial issue in the finest grade possible. Listed on page 273 of the 1993 Guide Book.
