This is an important coin for the specialist, BG-527 being rare in all grades and exceedingly rare in Mint State. In fact, the only other Mint State example known is the Jay Roe specimen (Bowers and Merena, September 2003, lot 125) certified MS-61 by PCGS. Certified in the same grade by NGC, the coin we offer here is a satiny honey-gold piece free of significant abrasions. Sharply struck in the centers, a bit softly impressed around the peripheries, this overall bold looking coin is sure to serve as the centerpiece of an important Fractional gold collection.
