Lot Description

About half of all certified pieces are in circulated grades, but the present piece is lustrous and friction-free with attractive rose-gold toning. The D initial beneath the bust stands for Deriberpie, a San Francisco Gold Rush engraver who worked with jeweler Nouizillet. Population: 3 in 63, 1 finer (3/13).
