A most attractive example of this extremely rare date, the fields retaining much of their proof like reflectivity, with hardly any noticeable highpoint loss. One of the best possible examples of this rare coin available in recent years.

Has been slabbed and graded by PCGS as AU55 in an old blue original label from many years ago, which in its self is now becoming collectable.
