Lot Description
Satiny and bright, this yellow-gold example also sports smooth surfaces that are at the threshold of full Gem quality. This early issue saw active circulation (as confirmed by the fact that more than a dozen examples were found with the shipwreck of the <em>S.S. Winfield Scott</em>) and, while it is plentiful in an absolute sense, Mint State examples such as this are quite scarce in today's market. Neither PCGS nor NGC has certified a single coin finer than MS-64.
