Lot Description
A sizeable obverse die break (as made) at the upper right border probably contributed to the early discard of that die and, by extension, the scarcity of the BG-1005 variety in numismatic hands. This is a semi prooflike survivor with bright yellow-gold surfaces and a suitably bold strike.
