SKU: 37787642


Superb Gem Unc (14: 4,5,5) Full strike with very few marks. This is an outstanding example, as evidenced by it was originally graded PR66 by PCGS and as such was the finest graded! Well it is not a Proof, but their mistake shows how nice this example is. These are usually weak on the shield and this is fully struck. This issue was struck in the last month of 1859 and were to be issued. The small mintage of only 1,000 pieces might have ignited the interest of a Philadelphia area dealer in 1859 and he may have bought the entire issue for $10. Regardless of the circumstances, none were released into circulation.
