A highly lustrous honey gold example with strong mint frost in the protected areas, and with lively olive toning in the satiny fields. One of just 10,960 pieces struck, a modest but typical mintage for Philadelphia in the era. A notable scarcity in all grades, and definitely a <em>condition rarity</em> in choice AU-58 as here--you will not find a finer piece in a PCGS holder! The strike is crisp, the marks are trivial, and the eye appeal is substantial. Take a good look at this one, as we're certain it must easily equal any of the other pieces graded AU-58 by PCGS.
